Kindergarten 2022-2023!

We are excited to open kindergarten enrollment registration for the 2022-2023 school year for our future EGRPS graduating class of 2035!  As a district we want you to know that we are ready for your child. Our commitment to you is to educate the whole child by providing an engaging and nurturing environment that includes highly qualified and caring teachers. 
We encourage families to complete the online Kindergarten Intent-to-Enroll Form with the required documentation, listed below, on or before March 1, 2022, to ensure accurate enrollment projections.
