Registering for the 2021-2022 school year
If your child will be five years old on or before September 1, 2021, you need to register him or her for kindergarten if you have not already done so.
There are several options for submitting your child’s kindergarten registration information. You can submit your child’s paperwork in one of three ways.
- Drop it off at your child's school
- Mail it to your child's school
- Email it to the main office of your child's school
You only have to do one of the three options. More details about each one is included below.

Spring Into Kindergarten
Spring Into Kindergarten is a fun event for incoming kindergarten students and their parents/guardians. Students and parents/guardians will take a tour of their school and learn about ways to better prepare your child for kindergarten in the fall. Each child will go home with a gift bag full of tools they need to keep learning and growing all summer long. You will receive more information about this event as well as the dates and times after your complete your child's registration.
Kindergarten Screening is mandatory for incoming kindergarten students. This helps us ensure we are prepared to meet the needs of all of our students in the fall.
