Do you have a kindergarten-age child?

Do you have a Kindergarten-age child?

Here are some things to know and remember.

• Kindergarten students must be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2006.

• Registration for all elementary schools was Aug. 10.

If you missed it, please contact your neighborhood school as soon as possible for registration.

• You will need to bring records of your child's immunizations, birth certificate, and physical examination.

• Be familiar with your school office. They can help with many of your questions.

• Check at your school office for transportation information, routes, and times.

• Bus service will be provided to school only. Kindergarten parents are required to arrange for transportation AFTER the kindergarten school day has ended.

• There will be an adjusted kindergarten schedule in all schools during the first week to accommodate state required "student & parent interviews" or "orientation" to the kindergarten student's new classroom. Check with your school at registration for details. You will be notified about the date and time of your school entrance -welcome interview with your child's teacher before school starts.

• The first day of school for Kindergarten is Monday, August 28.

The Juneau School District believes that a strong partnership with parents is an essential element in supporting students to meet with success in school.
