2021/22 TK/KINDER REGISTRATION

To enter Kindergarten in the fall, a child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2021. To enter Transitional Kindergarten, a child must turn five between September 2, 2021 and December 2, 2021.

Parents should register their children at the school serving their residence area (proof of residence is required).

Registration is taking place now.

You must begin the registration process online at www.marigold.chicousd.org.

Look for the tab 'Enroll a Student'. Follow all directions on enrollment page.

The following are required to register a child: (1) proof of date of birth (birth certificate, baptismal certificate, or other legal proof), (2) two forms verifying proof of residency, and (3) written immunization record from a physician, nurse or health department. Children must be immunized for MMR, polio, TDaP, Hep B and Varicella prior to school entry. Students missing immunizations will not be able to start school until we receive these records.

Please note that Form 10 School of Choice applications will be available December 7, 2020, with a deadline to submit by January 22, 2021, for first priority placement opportunities. You must still register at your resident school prior to submitting a Form 10.

FOR PARENTS OF 5TH GRADERS

If you are interested in having your current 5th grader attend a Jr High that is out of your home attendance area, you must submit a 'Form 10' for approval. Form 10's will be available December 7, 2020 for the 21/22 school year. You will find the form at www.chicousd.org. The DEADLINE to submit the form and be considered in the lottery is January 22, 2021.

SCHOOL PICTURE NEWS

Lifetouch will not be coming to elementary campus's this year to take school photographs. If you were hoping to have your child photographed, it may be time to go to plan B. This is due to restricted access on school grounds for people other than staff and students. Thank you for understanding we take the health and safety of our students very seriously.

Library books are available for check-out from the Marigold Library. Students attending in-person can request books online in Destiny Discover (link below) by Thursday and Ms. Lindsey will deliver to classrooms on Fridays. Library books are due the following Thursday in your classroom library box.
