    Sending off your child to school for the first time can be a little scary! We've put all the resources you'll need in one handy location.

    Who should register?
    Students who will reach age 5 on or before Sept. 1 (born on or before Sept. 1, 2013) are eligible to enroll in kindergarten in our district for the 2018-19 school year. (Yes, that's the class of 2031!)
    What school will my child be going to?
    Click here to use our online tool to find out what your neighborhood school is. If you would like your child to attend a different school, visit www.springfield.k12.or.us/transfers to find out how to apply. Note that during the Open Enrollment period (March 1-April 1), applications received will generally be accepted as long as space is available at the requested school and grade.

    How do you register?
    You can enroll at your school at any time before the beginning of the coming school year. Note, however, that elementary schools are closed during the summer and reopen in late August. Schools will be holding Welcome Nights in the spring, and elementary registration will also be held at all schools in late August. You'll need to bring proof of your child's age (such as a birth certificate), immunization records (which you can update before school starts), and proof of address for yourself.
    Please visit our Kindergarten Registration page for more detail about what you will need to register.
    Can we visit schools before we register?
    Yes! If you are unable to attend your school's spring Welcome Night, you are welcome to contact the school on your own to arrange a visit before the end of the school year.
    How can I find out more about full-day kindergarten?

    Do you have any tips for incoming parents?
    Yes, the district has created a pamphlet called "A Parent's Guide to Kindergarten" with loads of suggestions for new families.
    What can I do at home to get my child ready for kindergarten?
    Visit our "Giving Your Child a Jumpstart" page for some suggestions and resources.
    More questions? Please contact your school directly if you have further questions about enrolling your child.
