Registration of New Students

​Students may begin kindergarten in September of the year they turn 5 years old.  

Registration of students that live in our catchment area can be done in person or via email. Please visit the district website here for further information including the necessary documents for registration. 

Check to see if we are your catchment school - click on School / School locator.  

​Cross Catchment

Parents sometimes wish for their children to attend a school that is not their catchment school. In such cases, you must first register at your catchment school.  Cross boundary transfers of students will be considered based on student population.
