A child must be 5 years old by Oct. 1, 2021, to be eligible for kindergarten. No exceptions.
When attending registration, the parent/guardian should have a state-issued birth certificate or other acceptable proof of name and age of child, along with immunization records for the child enrolling.
Also, the parent/guardian must bring two proofs of residency and any court related documents pertaining to the child if applicable.
At the scheduled appointment, only one parent/guardian and the child to be registered attend the appointment.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, the school is limiting the number of people who will be entering the building. Masks are required.
Please arrive at your scheduled appointment time.
The parent/guardian will meet with the school secretary who will record all pertinent information, as well as determine the child’s bus stop. The school nurse will record all medical information, review immunization requirements, and provide information on health related issues.
While the parent/guardian is completing these meetings and being oriented, the child will be participating in their own activity.
The entire orientation and testing program will take approximately 30 minutes.
