Early Entrance to Kindergarten
Children who become five years of age on September 2 through October 15 of the calendar school year for which the student seeks admission may enroll in kindergarten based upon meeting the guidelines for early entrance to kindergarten. A request needs to be made in writing to the building principal by March 1. In order to minimize the academic risks associated with early entrance to kindergarten, academic and intellectual ability testing is required.
