    Enrollment Age Requirements


    A recently enacted Michigan law amended the Revised School Code (MCL 380.1147), which changed the minimum age requirement for a child enrolling in kindergarten. Children must turn 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2018, in order to register for school.

    Children who turn 5 after September 1, 2018, and not later than December 1st, 2018, may request an early entrance waiver to attend kindergarten. Please click here to complete the Hastings Area Schools Kindergarten Early Entrance waiver form.
