Online Kindergarten Registration Option

There is a new online option for the kindergarten registration process this year. The online process replaces the registration form itself and allows parents to complete the form online. This process establishes an account for that child in Family File. Part of the registration process permits registrants to upload documents. In addition to doing the online registration and uploading of documents, parents/guardians must come to the school to meet with the secretary in order to verify their identity and pick up our school-specific information.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this option, please download the directions below.
