Students are eligible for kindergarten by turning 5 years old on or before Oct. 1, 2014. During registration, it is imperative that the incoming student attend with their parent/guardian. Paperwork and applicable screening will take place. Therefore, participants will need to allow approximately one hour for the entire process.
