We look forward to becoming part of your child's educational future! Below you will find the information we need from you to enroll your new kindergartner! Hopkins elementary schools have full-day kindergarten.
All the enrollment materials for kindergarten are available in the 'Resources' section, from any of our elementary school offices, or at your child's Kindergarten Roundup session. During the summer — June 15 through August 15 — enrollment packets are available at our District Office, 1001 Highway 7, Hopkins.
Hopkins Public Schools has two enrollment options that start in kindergarten - Chinese Immersion (XinXing Academy) and a newly added Spanish Immersion program. Both programs are housed at Eisenhower Elementary. If you are interested in immersion, you will need to fill out an application (located on the right under resources). The application deadline for XinXing and Spanish Immersion is January 15 and January 31 for Spanish Immersion. Families will be notified in February about the status of their application.
