Back to School

For our Future Rayders!

Welcome to Charlevoix Public Schools!

We look forward to working with you and your child as you progress through these very important educational years!  Please see below for important information regarding the enrollment process and required documentation. Please be aware that your child may not attend class until the proper documentation is on file with the school district.  

Over the past few years legislation has changed the entry age for students entering Kindergarten.  For the 2022-2023 school year, a child must be 5 on or before September 1, 2022 to register for kindergarten.

It is always our goal to provide your child with an excellent education in a safe environment.  You are our partner in this important endeavor and we welcome you to the Charlevoix Elementary School family!
