  • Welcome to Kindergarten!

    The first day of kindergarten is September 1st, 2016

    Starting kindergarten is an exciting time and an important step for the whole family. This webpage shares information about kindergarten and provides readiness tips to help you and your child have a confident start to school.

    • Your first step for preparing for school is to register for school! School buildings are open and staff are eager to meet you and your child. For more information about registration, visit the Enrollment and Transfer Center website. 

    • All kindergarten classrooms are full-day and free to families. For more information about preparing for kindergarten and a typical classroom schedule, click the ABCs of Kindergarten link to the right. 

    • Good attendance in kindergarten helps your child be successful in school. To learn more about kindergarten attendance, visit attendanceworks.org. 

    • All families have an opportunity to visit the school and meet your child's teacher. Kindergarten transition meeting days are August 29th, 30th, 31st, and your school secretary or teacher will schedule a meeting. Contact your school for more information. 

    • For information about before and after school child care services, visit the child care website
