Families are encouraged to skip the long summer lines and sign up their children now for kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year. Parents/guardians of children who will be 5 on or before Sept. 1 can visit the Welcome Center, 501 7th St., to enroll. The early enrollment window closes March 31.
Students attend kindergarten based on geographic zones that align with their parents/guardians’ home address. Follow this link to search an address and find the assigned zone school. Once enrolled, families will register students in August and receive a classroom assignment, school supply list and pay fees for the upcoming school year.
