Kindergarten Registration Image2022-2023

It is time to start thinking about Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year.  Students must be five years old by August 15, 2022 to be eligible.  You will need a birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of residency to register.    
Online Registration will open on February 2 at noon. If you have other students in the district, just log onto your parent portal account to add new kindergarten student and verify your contact information and complete the required forms. Registering in a timely manner will ensure we are able to request additional staffing if necessary and allow for more planning in the event space is needed to accommodate growth.

Kindergarten Registration Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is full-time Kindergarten better than part-time? 

A:  “Better” depends on what your child needs.  If he/she seems to be at-risk for not being as exposed to school environments and/or academic opportunities, then more exposure to school tends to reduce the potential for being retained later.  In addition, if your child would need to attend a daycare due to work situations, consistent placement in one place is often better for a child.  However, if during the other half of the day your child is not in school you are able to provide your own one-on-one time and experiences that enrich both your lives, that time is extremely valuable. 

Q: Are the first 75 students registered who request Full-time automatically enrolled? 

A: No, the first time we “pull” registration information is on February 18 and if at that time there are 75 or less students registered for full-time, all those students will be assigned to our three classes.  If on the 18th there are 76 or more students requesting full-time, there will be a lottery and a wait list is created for full-time and those students go into a part-time class instead. 

Q: Are open-enrollment students eligible for full-time Kindergarten? 

A: We are not currently accepting open-enrollment applications from outside the district. If you live within the district, those applications will be considered later in the spring. 

Q: Does part-time Kindergarten offer special services such as IEP, interventions or ELL? 

A: Yes.  All services are commensurate to the amount of time the students are in school and they would receive the extra support they qualify for. 

Q: Do we get to pick AM or PM if we are assigned to part-time Kindergarten?

A: We do everything we can to accommodate those requests and denial of that time slot would only be based on limited space in a classroom. 

Q: What are the hours Kindergarteners are in school? 

A: See the start - stop times below:

Full-tme = 7:55-2:45 

AM Part-time = 7:55-10:55 

PM Part-time = 11:55 - 2:55 

The first day of school has traditionally been different from the first day for 1st - 5th graders based on individual conferences/assessments we have Kindergarten students participate in. This will be determined later in the spring based on more discussion with district leadership.
