Kindergarten 2020-2021!

As we continue our planning for the 2020-2021 school year, knowing the number of resident children enrolling for Kindergarten is an important part of our overall district budget planning process. We encourage you to complete the Kindergarten Intent-to-Enroll Form and submit along with the required documentation so that we can ensure accurate Kindergarten enrollment projections.

If your child currently attends preschool, please have his/her teacher complete and return the Preschool/Child Care Student Information Form.

Please note: The State of Michigan requires all children to be five years of age on or before September 1st in order to be eligible for next year's class. If you request to enroll your child in Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year, and your child will not be five years of age on or before September 1, 2020, but will turn five years of age not later than December 1, 2020, you must also complete a Kindergarten Enrollment Waiver Request Form.

As a district we want you to know that we are ready for your child. Our commitment to you is to provide an engaging and nurturing environment for your child that includes highly qualified and caring teachers, and to educate the whole child.
