Parents of children who will enter kindergarten in September are encouraged to register them now. Registration forms are available by clicking here or by calling 732-2523. A child must be five years old by December 1 to attend kindergarten in September. Registering your child now will ensure you have time to file all necessary paperwork so your child is ready to start the 2014-15 school year on time. It also helps the school district plan for the 2014-15 school year by providing an estimate of how many students will enter kindergarten. In order to receive future mailings of upcoming events, your child must be registered. Posted 3/10/14.
