Kindergarten Registration

January 17 to February 10, 2017

A registration period for students who will enter kindergarten in September 2017 will be held from January 17 to February 10, 2017. Students who will be 5 years old on or before December 1, 2017, are eligible for kindergarten in the 2017-18 school year.

Families with students eligible to enter kindergarten in the fall of 2017 who are in the districts' database will be mailed a kindergarten registration packet in January prior to the registration period. If you do not receive one or if you have not previusly contacted the district registrar about your child, please call District Registrar Joan Vertigan at 377-4666 x50714 or e-mail her at

Parents will be asked to come to the Registrar's Office to register at their convenience during the kindergarten registration period. No priority is assigned based on order of registration.

If you have any questions about this process, please call Ms. Vertigan at 377-4666 x50714.

Special note about flex zones

The district utilizes six flexible attendance zones ("flex zones") to balance class sizes at the elementary level. These zones are being implemented with each entering kindergarten class. Students who reside in these areas may be assigned to one of two or more schools for the purposes of balancing class sizes. Families who live in flex zones will be provided with a form that enables them to state a school preference. If you are not sure if you live in a flex zone, please contact Ms. Vertigan or consult the attendance zone map.
