In order to register your child for kindergarten he/she must turn 5 on or before September 1st, 2017 (no exceptions).

If you do not have an official birth certificate you may obtain one by filling out a form that the Jefferson office has and you can then mail it in with your check or money order.

**In accordance with the Idaho Child Protection Law when enrolling a student in a public or private school for the first time, the parent or guardian must provide (within 30 days), a certified copy of the student’s birth certificate. Upon failure of a person enrolling a student to comply with the provisions of this law, the school must immediately notify the local law enforcement agency.**

Please remember that we need the official birth certificate, not a hospital certificate.
