Our goal is to keep students in their neighborhood or "home" school, although potentially some students could be placed in other schools to maximize the efficiency of our Full-Day Kindergarten (FDK) and Half-Day Kindergarten (HDK) programs.

All children will receive a placement for Kindergarten at a school with available slots once classroom slots in a "home school" are filled. Students registered after the 16th will be placed on a waiting list for that school in the order in which registrations are completed.
