Advanced Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten advanced registration took place on January 24 and 25, 2017.

Parents may register children who will be four years of age by December 31, 2017 in the first year of the two-year Kindergarten program. Registration forms are available at each elementary school. Completed applications and appropriate documentation can be submitted to the home school, beginning at the advanced registration dates in January of the year that the child will be starting the program. 

What do I Need to Register my Child?

  • Year 2 (Senior Kindergarten) children are required to be 5 years of age on or before December 31, 2017.​
  • Roman or Eastern Rite Catholic baptismal certificate. If ​the child has no Roman/Eastern Rite Catholic baptismal ​certificate, the child may be admitted if one parent can provide a Roman/Eastern Rite Catholic baptismal ​certificate. For additional information, please refer to the ​Board's Operating Policy I-22.
  • Evidence of completed prescribed program of immunization for diphtheria, tetanus, poliomyelitis, measles, mumps and rubella
