Students must turn five years old prior to Sept. 30, 2012 to be eligible to enter kindergarten.
* Parents are asked to bring copies of the following papers for registration:
1. Original Birth Certificate or Passport
2. Immunization Records
3. Proof of Residency (current gas/electric bill)
4. Child’s Social Security Number
5. Custody Papers (if applicable)
Any questions about kindergarten registration should be directed to the office of the school your child will be attending. As you plan for the beginning of kindergarten, please be aware of the three-day phase-in for kindergarten students.
The phase-in helps with the transition to kindergarten because the students are brought into schools in small groups. On each of the three days of the phase-in, one-third of the students attend class.
During the phase-in time, students are oriented to the world of kindergarten and teachers take some time to accurately assess individual skill levels in a small-group setting.
The phase-in period is Aug. 27, 28, & 29. Your child will only be attending kindergarten one of the first three days of school. Beginning Thursday, Aug. 30, all kindergarten students attend school.
Your phase-in day will be assigned to you by your school. Students are also assigned AM or PM kindergarten status. Buildings may try to accommodate parental requests, but staffing levels are set and requests may not be able to be granted.
