Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Registration Begins February 1, 2019.

We encourage you to register your child by June 1, 2019 to help us determine our facility needs for the 2019-2020 school year.

Many of our schools fill their Kindergarten classes quickly. It is imperative that parents enroll as soon as possible to ensure a spot for your child at your school.

Kindergarten is available for students who turn 5 years old on or before September 1st.

Please note per board policy: Transitional Kindergarten is available for students whose birthday is between September 2 to December 2.

Only these birthdays will be accepted for this program.

Registration Packets must be picked up by parent/guardian at your home school.
