Registering for the 2020-2021 school year
If your child will be five years old on or before September 1, 2020, you need to register him or her for kindergarten if you have not already done so.
Due to the school closures, we have several new options for submitting your child’s kindergarten registration information. You can submit your child’s paperwork in one of two ways.
- Drop it off at one of our dropoff locations
- Mail it to us
You only have to do one of the two options. More details about each one is included below.
