Full Day Kindergarten (FDK) Update

On Thursday, 1/28, the District held our annual kindergarten parent informational meeting. This was also the first opportunity for parents to put down a deposit to reserve a place for their child(ren) in the FDK program. We have reached our cap of 125 students for the FDK program for 2016-17 and will not be accepting any additional deposits at this time. However, parents that would like to have their child(ren) attend FDK can still submit an intent form and be placed on the waiting list, in the order received. Click here to access the intent form and additional information on the kindergarten registration process. To submit your intent form, you can email it to devangelista@scsmustangs.org or mail or drop it off at the address listed on the form. Should we enroll enough students that would warrant an additional section of FDK, parents on the wait list will be contacted in order of receipt of their intent form.
