Kindergarten Registration Reminder

Parents of children eligible for 2016-2017 Kindergarten (must be 5 years old by Dec. 31, 2016) are reminded to register their children immediately so that we have an accurate count of children. You can scroll down this page for more information about the registration process.  Please note that all children may only be registered in schools that they are zoned for.

Planning is now underway and all parents/caregivers of registered children will be receiving an important mail-out over the next few weeks regarding spring activities and events for our new K students and their parents.  We’re looking forward to meeting all of our new students and their families!
