2020 2021 Kindergarten Registration/Screening Information

The Boise School District Kindergarten Registration/Screening at Pierce Park Elementary will be held on March 5, 2020 from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm in the school gymnasium. It is important that you begin planning now by making sure that you have your child’s birth certificate and updated immunization records. This paperwork will be needed upon enrollment.


When you come to Kindergarten Registration/Screening, you will need to bring:

  • Your child
  • Birth Certificate for your child (birth certificates can be ordered online at https://healthandwelfare.idaho.gov/?TabId=82)
  • Immunization Records (see attached document below for more information)
  • Proof of residency (a copy of a bill is requested)
  • Any legal paperwork that reflects child custody.


If you are NOT currently living in the Pierce Park school boundary, but would like to apply for OPEN ENROLLMENT for your child to attend Kindergarten at Pierce Park, Please follow the directions below.


  • Contact the school office at 208-854-5880 and let Kristi Jones know that you would like to have your child’s name added to the Open Enrollment list for Kindergarten 2020 2021.
  • Pick up an Open Enrollment form from the school office. Fill it out and get it submitted to the school office as soon as possible. (Form is also attached below)
  • Please attend the Registration/Screening day at your child’s boundary/homeschool. It is very important that you enroll at your boundary school in case we are not able to accommodate for your child’s open enrollment at Pierce Park. You will NOT attend Pierce Park’s Registration/Screening on March 5, 2020. We will request records from your child’s boundary/homeschool upon acceptance of your child’s open enrollment.
  • Make sure that you have your child’s birth certificate and immunization records. If your child’s open enrollment is accepted, we will need to have copies of these to complete enrollment. Open enrollment will not be accepted without this paperwork on file.
  • Pierce Park will host a Sneak Peek in August for all students to be able to visit the school and meet their classroom teacher. This will be a great opportunity for your child to see the school if their open enrollment is approved.
