Beginning Thursday, December 10th, children born in 2016 can apply to kindergarten for the 2021-22 school year.

The application deadline is Tuesday, January 19, 2021. All families who apply by the deadline will receive a kindergarten offer in April.

All families should participate in kindergarten admissions, including children currently attending pre-K, students with disabilities, English Language Learners, and students with accessibility needs.
