2021-2022 Kindergarten Registration
Posted on 03/09/2021

The Mason Early Childhood Center’s 2021-2022 kindergarten registration is underway. Students must be five years of age on or before September 30 to be eligible for Kindergarten. Due to COVID restrictions this year our pre-registration meeting will be a Zoom meeting on February 24


We are so excited to welcome and connect with the Class of 2034! This group of Comet Kids is sure to be a special one as they are working to better understand the world around them. We can't wait to meet them!” says Melissa Bly, MECC Principal.


Registration packets will be available for pick-up at the Mason Early Childhood Center at 4631 Hickory Woods Drive, or at our Central Registration Office at 211 North East Street February 25.  At that time the packet will also be available to download and print from the kindergarten registration page on www.MasonOhioSchools.com.  Packets will not be available for pick up or download before February 25.


Families will drop off kindergarten registration packets in a secure location in a safe, no contact way at the MECC main entrance on the following dates:

Wednesday, March 17 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Tuesday, March 23 6:00pm - 8:00pm

At this time, completed packets will be returned along with COPIES of the following required documents:

  • Proof of residency (lease, deed, settlement statement) or see **below.  
  • Child's original birth certificate or passport
  • Please be aware that obtaining a birth certificate can take up to 6 weeks.  Contact the Bureau of Vital Statistics in the city where your child was born if you do not have an original document.  For students born in Ohio, you may go to any local health department to obtain a birth certificate.
  • Parent/Guardian driver’s license or state issued ID card
  • Current Immunization Record
  • Court Documents (if applicable), i.e.  Custody, Shared parenting

** If building a new home, or purchase is pending, form MCS-308 is also required.  Your closing date must be within 90 calendar days of the start of school. 

**If parent/guardian's name does not appear on the residency documents, the person whose name does appear must fill out Affidavit II and provide a copy of their driver's license along with proof of residency.

Please note: at this time we are accepting copies of documents, however should the need arise for the original at a later date we will contact you.  We are also waiving the requirement for a notarized signature on the affidavit forms.

Kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year will be ½ day programming with AM hours 9:20am - 12:05pm and PM hours 1:05pm - 3:50pm. Your child’s session is determined by the address of your residence. The finalized street listing will be posted on our website.  Bus pickup and drop off times will not be available until late July.  If you are coordinating residential private child care, you will need to stay within your residential assigned session for your child to receive Mason bus service both to and from school.  If a session change is desired, you will find the request to change form on our website. Session changes will be granted by the principal only if enrollment numbers allow. Your child’s transportation may be affected as a result of a session change.  Please keep this in mind as you arrange care for your child. Most public daycare centers within the Mason City School limits receive bus service for both sessions. However, please be aware that some daycares may be assigned a specific session due to their location.  This information will be available on the street listing guide.
