Kindergarten open registration for the 2009 -- 10 school year will take place at the elementary schools from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday April 1 and from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday April 2. Families currently on the district student database will receive an informational letter and registration packet in the mail the week of March 10. Registration will take place at the elementary school of the student's current attendance area for his or her home address. The informational letter will provide details for parents regarding which school to register their children at, as well as the requirements needed to complete the registration process.
In order to be eligible for kindergarten in September, a child must be five years old on or before Dec. 1, 2009. The district is unable to honor requests to make exceptions for students who "just miss" the cutoff date. To register, a parent or guardian must bring the child's original birth certificate as proof of age, health appraisal with immunization record form signed by a physician, a dental health exam form, signed by a dentist (both forms are provided in the registration packet) and proof of residency in the form of a driver's license with a district address, a school tax bill or a utility bill for your residence.
Anyone who has an eligible child who does not attend a local pre-school program or day care should contact the district registration office at 635-4569 or 638-6050 to be added to the district mailing list. Any family not receiving a packet by March 13, should call the district registration office to request a packet be mailed, or pick up a packet as a "walk-in" at the school your child will attend in the fall during the open registration hours listed above. A complete listing of addresses for each elementary attendance zone is available on the district's registration web page at bville.org along with other valuable information regarding registration requirements and procedures.
