How to Register: Registration is ongoing throughout the school year. A child who turns four years old on or before March 1 is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of that same calendar year. For example, this means to register for kindergarten in September 2016, a child must turn four years old on or before March 1, 2016. The child’s birth certificate should be presented at the time of registration. Contact your local elementary school for more information. All families are encouraged to inquire.
Kindergarten Information: We have moved additional information for the kindergarten program to the tab located at the top of this Home Page. Kindergarten registrations are year round as of this fall. When registering, please remember to bring you child’s birth certificate and baptismal certificate (or a Catholic baptismal certificate of one of the parents).
