Kindergarten and New Student Registration

Parents/guardians of kindergarten and new students enrolling for the 2020-2021 school year (who are not already enrolled) are able to enroll online.  A list of all required documents is provided.

Student/Family Drop Off and Pick Up Coming Soon!

We recognize that when our students left Deep Run on March 13th, various personal items were left at school. HCPSS has developed procedures for our staff, families, and students to follow in order to pick up very important/essential items from school. This will also be a time for students not returning to Deep Run for the 2020-2021 school year to return items.  Students in prekindergarten through 4th grade returning to Deep Run or another HCPSS school for the 2020-2021 school year will receive their non-essential items when we return to school.

Items that need to be returned to school by students not returning to Deep Run or another HCPSS school may include.  Please note:  5th graders going to a HCPSS middle school will keep items until schools re-open.

  • Chromebooks
  • Library Books
  • Text Books
  • Musical instruments

We would like to receive 5th grade safety belts and badges--these should not be held until schools re-open.

Items to be picked up by 5th graders and students not returning to Deep Run or another HCPSS school may include:

  • 5th grade promotion materials
  • Pre-ordered yearbooks and school photographs
  • Medication
  • Personal instruments
  • ADA or Assistive Technology Devices
  • Other personal items

Parents will be asked to complete a survey to indicate the items they need to pick up or drop off following the guidelines above.  A survey should be completed for each child.  Please be on the look-out for the survey today or tomorrow and complete it as soon as possible.  Once the surveys are completed, school staff will prepare a schedule with specific procedures.  We will be following strict social distancing procedures during the pick up and drop off at school.

If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Lancaster at
