Incoming kindergartners

A special registration session for all incoming kindergarten students is held every January. Information on this session is mailed in late December to families of incoming kindergarten students that are listed in our district census database. Children must be five years old by December 1 of the year they enter kindergarten to be eligible to attend school.

Parents of eligible children who are not notified by mail should contact the district office.
