Kindergarten Registration Information

Dear Incoming Kindergarten Parents,

September is right around the corner. Children who will be 5 years or older on or before December 1, 2020, are eligible to start kindergarten in September 2020.  

Due to the closure of schools, we wanted to update you on the Kindergarten registration process at Jefferson Elementary School.

Kindergarten registration and orientation for parents were originally scheduled for March 16, 2020, but was canceled due to the impending COVID 19 crisis.

Kindergarten screening is currently planned for May 11-18, 2020.  We will keep you updated on the status of this tentative date as we receive additional information from the Governor’s office.  In the event of an extended school closure, we are planning to conduct Kindergarten screening remotely. Please stay tuned for additional information, which may include revised dates on screening.
