You and your child are invited to visit Kindergarten classrooms, meet Kindergarten teachers, turn in registration/enrollment forms, and tour the school.
Please bring the following for Kindergarten registration:
1. A copy of your child's birth certificate. Your child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2018.
2. Proof of early childhood screening. If your child was screened in ISD 200, we will have the screening report on file.

WHAT TIME DOES SCHOOL START?
Drop off times are from 8:30 am-8:45 am. Children should not be dropped off before 8:30. If your child is going to breakfast, you may drop off at 8:25 am and have them go directly to the cafeteria.
If you need to drop off before the 8:30 bell, you can enroll your child in Kids Campus. Further information about Kid’s Campus can be obtained from the district’s website, the Pinecrest webpage, or from our office.
Please make sure your child(ren) arrive at school on time. Learning takes place in a carefully arranged environment that begins the minute your child arrives at school. When your child is late, he/she may not feel the connectedness with the class or have the opportunity to absorb learning in the best setting. To maximize instruction time and academic achievement for your child, as well as minimize disruption for the whole class, please avoid tardiness.
DRESS FOR THE WEATHER
If the temperature is below 0º fahrenheit, or the wind chill is around that level, we will keep the students inside during recess.
