An applicant for kindergarten and first grade must be the appropriate age by October 15 of the enrolling year (i.e., to enter K4, the child must be four years of age by the October 15 deadline).

K4 AND K5 STUDENTS MUST BE POTTY TRAINED. Parents of all kindergarten students are asked to send an extra full set of clothes, labeled for identification in a zip-lock bag to be kept at school. Accidents can happen at any time during the day. In the case of an accident, a parent may be called to change his child, if necessary. Jackets, sweaters, lunch boxes, etc., must be plainly marked with the child’s name. Unless requested, students are not allowed to bring money, jewelry, personal items (no toys), or any items that may be easily lost or broken.

All students entering kindergarten or transferring from another school are required to have the following forms on file: copy of certified birth certificate and certificate of immunization (Form 3231). These forms must be submitted with the application papers. The certificate of immunization (Form 3231) must be marked “Complete for School Attendance” or have an expiration date noted. If the form has an expiration date, a new certificate must be submitted within 30 days after the expiration date or the student will be excluded from attendance until an updated certificate is submitted.
