Kindergarten registration opens Feb. 23, 2016
Registration for fall kindergarten programs in Salem-Keizer Public Schools opens on Tuesday, February 23, 2016. Students who turn five on or before September 10, 2016, are eligible to register. All elementary schools in Salem-Keizer offer free, full-day kindergarten.
Parents are asked to register students soon to help the district prepare an adequate number of classrooms, supplies, etc. for the fall.
How to register
To register, please visit the school and pick up a registration packet. If you’re unsure what school is assigned to serve your residence address, please visit the district’s school finder page: www.salemkeizer.org/content/boundary-information
Parents must complete and sign the forms in the registration packet (registration form, home language survey, immunization form) and provide:
1. Proof of residence address. Examples of documents accepted include a copy of a utility bill, driver’s license with current address, copy of rental agreement, etc.
2. Original birth certificate for the child. The school will make a copy and return the original to the parent.
Help your student get ready
Parents can help students get ready for kindergarten by helping them:
· Hold a pencil, crayons and scissors correctly
· Practice writing his/her name
· Learn the ABC’s and how to count to twenty
· Name and identify basic shapes, such as square, triangle and circle
· Learn how to take turns and share with others
· How to use the bathroom and wash hands independently
In an effort to better allow schools to serve students, balance class sizes, staff accurately and align transfer windows, we are changing the In-District Transfer process to include two distinct windows for transfers at the elementary level. A similar process and change occurred at the secondary level two years ago.
Elementary transfer requests will now be accepted March 1- March 30th for the transfer to occur at the beginning of the following school year, and November 1- November 30 for the transfer to occur after Winter Break.
Due to the shortened notice of the change we will extend the Spring transition window this year only from March 1 – May 30th. If you are considering a transfer to another Salem-Keizer school for next year, please submit your request to your home school before the May 30th deadline to be considered for approval.
Thank you for your partnership and for sharing your children with us every day.
Attached is the PE daily schedule. Please remember that your child needs appropriate gym shoes for PE class-it makes a difference!
