Kindergarten Registration

If your child will be 5 years old by September 15, 2024, your child can be registered for Kindergarten.  Please complete and return a Kindergarten application packet (with required documents) to the Central Registrar's Office. This information will be made available in the coming weeks.

We will have three elementary schools within our district in 2024/2025: Emerson HoughThomas Jefferson, and Woodrow Wilson.  The elementary school your child will attend is determined by your address within our district. An updated Boundaries Map will be available in April 2024.

  • There is a packet of materials that needs to be completed before school starts.  The packets will be available at your elementary attendance center the night of the Kindergarten Social (more information to come, stay tuned!) or at the administration office.
