Kindergarten Registration & Testing

Incoming Kindergarten students will complete the registration/testing process on Tuesday, August 11 and Wednesday, August 12 by appointment. Staff members will begin contacting parents/guardians on August 5th to schedule a 30-minute slot during the two registration days. Kindergarten registration will take place in the spaces previously used by the Cherokee Clinic. Parents/guardians should plan to arrive a few minutes prior to their scheduled appointment and park in the gym parking lot. Parents/guardians and students may wait at the area outside the gym entrance, where they will be greeted by a staff member who will escort them to the testing area at their scheduled time.


Due to COVID-19, several precautions will be in place during the testing process:

  • Masks are required for all adults and students at Newport Grammar School.
  • Parents and students may only enter the building when escorted by an NGS staff member.
  • Only one parent will be permitted to accompany their child to the testing location. There will be a waiting area for other adults to wait while the child is being tested.
  • Testing areas will be sanitized between each test session.


Keep in mind that students have not yet been assigned to a specific teacher. Class supply lists can be found on any kindergarten teacher's page. Class assignments will be posted on the kindergarten teachers' class webpages after noon on Friday, August 14th.
