Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten



Kindergarten registrations were held at all elementary schools on Thursday, January 30, 2020.

Registration packets are now availale here or at any of our elementary schools.   

For planning and staffing purposes, it is important to the district that families register students for kindergarten starting January 30, 2020. Registrations for incoming kindergarten students continue to be accepted throughout the spring and summer, however, it is preferred that current residents register their child by the end of February.

The deadline for Junior Kindergarten registrations is Friday, February 21, 2020 as space in the Junior Kindergarten program is limited. After this deadline, families can request to be added to a waitlist.
