Kindergarten Screening
If your child will be five years of age by September 30, 2024, please call the K-2 Office to register for kindergarten for the 2024-25 school year. 

When you call, we will gather basic information about your son/daughter.  In addition, a screening appointment will be made for May 21 or 22.  During your appointment, you will bring your child to the school with you.  Our teachers will complete several assessments (vision, hearing, motor skills, academics, speech/language and play).

An appointment confirmation will be mailed to you along with instructions to complete our online registration.  If you do not complete the online registration at home, you will have time to do it while your child is being screened.

Begin gathering the following paperwork for your  visit:

  1. Official Birth Certificate
  2. Immunization Record
  3. Social Security Card (or Number)
  4. Custody Papers (if applicable)
  5. Proof of Residency (bill with your address)
NOTE:  You may still register your child and attend the screening without these documents.  However, we will need them before they can begin school in August.
