Your child must be 5 years old by September 30th, 2017.

The 2017-2018 registration form will be available in early March.

Each elementary school hosts a kindergarten registration event in the spring to assist parents with registering their kindergarten age child for the following school year.  This year's event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 15th, 2017 and is a great opportunity to receive assistance with the registration process, present required documentation, and learn more about our kindergarten program.  Parents do not need to bring their children with them to this event.  Schools will follow up with registered families after the event to schedule time to bring their child in for an introduction to the school, the school bus, and other fun activities.

​For more detailed information about the kindergarten registration process and kindergarten registration events, please contact the school your child will attend.
