Enrollment - Registration Information
Kindergarten/Transitional Kindergarten Programs: Please be sure to register your child for kindergarten. Each elementary school has a full-day kindergarten program and each site also has a pre-school program. Be sure to enroll your child for kinder if a child must turn 5 years old on or before Sept. 1st , 2014 to be eligible for kindergarten for the 2014-2015 school year. Children turning 5 year old between Sept. 2nd and Dec. 2nd, 2014 will be considered “Transitional Kindergartners” and can still be served at the elementary school site.
*What is Transitional Kindergarten? This is an option for a child who was born between September 2, 2009 and December 2nd, 2009 and they will be placed based upon their initial assessment results.
