2017/2018 Kindergarten Registration
If you have a child who is kindergarten age, please fill out the enrollment packet online and bring all forms with you to our school office, along with the other required documentations. If you cannot complete the form online, you may pick one up at our office.
To enroll in kindergarten for the 2017/2018 school year, a child must be five years of age on or before September 1, 2017. However, it is important for parents to know that there is a waiver process in place that would allow them to enroll their child even if they do not meet the age eligibility requirement. For a waiver to be accepted the child must be five years of age not later than December 1, 2017, and the parent or legal guardian does the following:
Parents and guardians may enroll the child in kindergarten for that school year if they notify the school district in writing no later than June 1, 2017. They should provide reasons as to why they feel their child is ready to start kindergarten or evidence of school readiness.
For families who become residents of the school district after June 1, they must notify the district in writing not later than August 1, 2017.
After receiving either of the above notifications, a school district may make a recommendation to the parent or legal guardian of the child that the child is not ready to enroll in kindergarten due to the child's age or other factors. However, regardless of such recommendation, the parent or legal guardian retains the sole discretion to determine whether to enroll the child in kindergarten. Information and waiver forms can be obtained from our school office. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
