NEW FOR 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR: We will offer families the opportunity to complete the Kindergarten registration process entirely online (no in-person registration required). Once the online registration link is available, you will be able to upload scans or photos of documents directly into the registration system.
If you wish to drop off paper copies of your paperwork instead, please hang on to them until school buildings re-open after the extended school closure during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The online portal is open. If you complete the full registration by April 15, you will receive a special invitation to our Kindergarten Kickoff family event in May (tentative). Please read the instructions below carefully, then click the button to begin your registration.
