Preparing for Kindergarten

At Mooresville, we work hard to create a caring and nurturing environment for our newest Pioneers while giving our students an excitement for learning.

Students who will turn age 5 by August 1 of a school year are eligible to join the kindergarten class. Mooresville Schools have several opportunities to help families get ready for this big step.  Read through the information below and don't hesitate to contact the school your child will attend to answer any questions.


Preparing for Kindergarten

Each spring, the district holds a pre-kindergarten fair where families can learn about our schools, receive important information for kindergarten preparedness, and share a fun evening with future classmates.

Check out our 2021 Virtual Kindergarten Roundup for links to all of the important information about starting school. This page includes:

  • Kindergarten Roundup Live Video – includes a welcome from Superintendent Taylor, information about activities to help with kindergarten readiness, and basic back to school information.   
  • Kindergarten Roundup Basic Information – includes information about the academic standards covered during kindergarten, some important “how to” guidance, and more.  
  • Links to Food Services, Transportation, and other important information. 

Families can also review our Kindergarten Readiness Booklet to find information about how to prepare for kindergarten, the school calendar, school start times, vaccination information, transportation, and much more.

Out of District Enrollment

Students who reside outside of the Mooresville school district area (Brown, Madison, and Harrison Townships) but would like to attend our schools may complete an online Out-of-District Enrollment Application. Please note out-of-district students' families must provide their own transportation. Additional information is available on the application form.  


Transportation Information

Riding the big yellow school bus is a new and exciting experience for our kindergarten students, and we want them to be comfortable and confident with their first bus ride. The week prior to school, we will have a school bus orientation program when students can ride the bus with their parents and learn important safety rules for the bus stop as well as riding the bus. Families receive information at Kindergarten Roundup or can contact their child's school for information. See our Transportation Webpage for additional information. 


Vaccination Requirements

The Indiana State Department of Health sets vaccination requirements for students entering kindergarten. We recommend families set appointments with the child's pediatrician in plenty of time to get required paperwork completed before the start of school. Review the state's Guidelines and Requirements.
