Kindergarten registration INFORMATION

If you will have a child starting school in the fall, please fill out the this form so we can keep you informed about registration and make preparations for fall. 

Kindergarten is open to students turning 5 by Sept. 1, 2020.


Unit 7 Schools registration for the 2020-21 school year is scheduled for August 4 & 5. Kindergarten registration and screening will be completed by appointment in August.

Students will meet one on one with a kindergarten teacher to review what they know about letters, numbers, counting, and other basic skills. Teachers will use this information to plan instruction when school starts in the fall.

Due to COVID-19, registration arrangements have not been finalized. More information will be available closer to the date and will be updated on this page as soon as district plans are in place.

At registration, Kindergarten students must establish guardianship and new families must establish residency with a district administrator by providing appropriate documentation. (click here for more information)

Each year we dedicate the first two days of school to Kindergarten Meet and Greet. Parents sign up for a 15-min conference that allows them and their child an opportunity to meet the teacher, tour the classroom, and get acquainted before the first day of school.
