Kinder Registration & Dual Language Info

The window for two important things are coming up during the month of March:

  1. Registration for incoming kinder students for the fall of 2021
  2. Window for applications for the Dual Language Program.

If you have a child who will be 5-years-old before September 10 of this year, you can swing by the school to get a registration packet (OR sign up through Parent Vue) beginning March 1st.

**Dual Language applications are only accepted during the month of March. This is a lottery system conducted by the K-12 Office. The deadline for the Dual Language Program application is March 31st. You can find the DL application here.

There is an informational meeting for all families who are interested in having their child attend the Dual Language Program.
