  • 2022-23 Kindergarten Information


    Due to COVID and our current safety protocols, we will not be having a Parent Information Night or Kindergarten Round Up this year. Please watch this video to view an electronic version of what would typically have been shared at our Parent Information Night.

    If you have a child who will be starting kindergarten in the fall, registration for the 2022/2023 school year is NOW OPEN. (Registration Link).  Children should be 5 years old by September 1, 2022 in order to attend.  Important:  Be sure to use the 2022/2023 link when you register as we are not able to move registration between years.

    Once you have submitted the registration online, you will be contacted by our office within a few days to let you know the next steps of the enrollment process.
