2018-2019 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

 

Registration for the 2018-2019 school year will be held on the following dates at the locations indicated below.

To enter Kindergarten in the fall, a child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2018.

To enter Transitional Kindergarten, a child must turn five between September 2, 2018 and December 2, 2018.

Parents should register their children at the school serving their residence area.

Proof of residence is required.

An online school locator program is available at http://www.chicousd.org/Schools/ School-Locator/index.html.

Parents can input their address and find out their resident school. Parents are strongly encouraged to register on the designated dates. Priority will be assigned based on the date of registration. The time of day that registration occurs will not constitute a priority. All children will be enrolled, but some may have to attend a school other than the one serving their residence area.

The following are required to register a child: (1) proof of date of birth (birth certificate, baptismal certificate, or other legal proof), (2) two forms verifying proof of residency, and (3) written immunization record from a physician, nurse, or health department. Children must be immunized for MMR - measles, mumps and rubella (German measles), polio, DTaP - diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chicken pox) prior to school entry. State law requires students beginning Kindergarten have all required immunizations. Students missing immunizations will not be able to start school until we receive these records.

Welcome Kindergarteners!

Kindergarten registration is just around the corner. Now is the perfect time to begin exploring the educational options available for your child.

How it Works

Parents should register their children at the school serving their residence area (proof of residence is required). Parents are strongly encouraged to register on the designated dates because priority will be assigned based on the date of registration. The time of day that registration occurs will not constitute a priority.
