Any child who will be five (5) years of age on or before September 1 is eligible to enroll for Kindergarten at their designated home school.
Kindergarten registration is completed online. After the online application has been submitted you should contact your child’s boundary school for school-specific forms to complete, class assignment, schedules and other information to make your child’s transition a smooth one. If you register online, you can also upload your child’s certificate of immunization, birth certificate and proof of address, or bring them to the school.
Each elementary school will offer parents an opportunity to find out more about the kindergarten program at their spring Kindergarten information events. Please check with your neighborhood school to see when the event is scheduled.
If you are uncertain about which elementary school is your home school, you can check any address to see what elementary, middle or high school attendance boundary it is located in using the School Locator or call 503-252-2900.
