All children enrolling in kindergarten for the 2013-14 school year must be five years old by August 31, 2013. When registering a child for school, families should bring: proof of child’s birth date (birth or hospital certificate, passport); immunization information and child’s health history; and names and phone numbers of parents, physician and emergency contact when the parent/guardian cannot be reached.
Some elementary schools offer a tuition- based, full-time program on a space available basis. Full-time kindergarten students attend school every day and have the same school calendar as students in grades 1-5. Students enrolled in full-time kindergarten receive extra instruction time to learn basic skills for first grade. All children enrolled in the full-time program must qualify through participation in a screening process held later in the spring.
Families should contact their neighborhood school for registration information after January 7, 2013, or download a packet from the District Web site at www.sumnersd.org. Completed registration forms should be returned to the school.
