Kindergarten Registration


Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Registration Begins February 3, 2020.

COVID-19 Update.
New enrollments will be done electronically through Synergy mid-May. Please contact your site principal if you have any questions.

We encourage you to register your child by June 1, 2020 to help us determine our facility needs for the 2020-2021 school year.

Many of our schools fill their Kindergarten classes quickly. It is imperative that parents enroll as soon as possible to ensure a spot for your child at your school.

Kindergarten is available for students who turn 5 years old on or before September 1st.

Please note per board policy: Transitional Kindergarten is only available for students whose birthday is between September 2 to December 2.

Only these birthdays will be accepted for this program.
