• What You Need to Register for Kindergarten
    Springfield kinders attend school on the same schedule as the rest of the elementary school.

    Kinders begin the school year on a "staggered start" schedule. More details will be forthcoming as the new school year draws closer. 
    Class of 2030

    Students who will reach age 5 on or before Sept. 1 (born on or before Sept. 1, 2012) are eligible to enroll in kindergarten in our district for the 2017-18 school year. (Yes, that's the class of 2030!)

    If you are registering at your neighborhood school, you may register at any time directly at the school at any time prior to the beginning of the school year. (Questions? Please contact your school directly.)
    We encourage families to register as early as possible to help us in our planning and to ensure you receive critical information from the school in a timely manner.
    Spring Kindergarten Registration Nights (March 7-9) are a great time to visit the school and register early!
    To register your student, you will need to show proof of the child's age (either a birth certificate or hospital records that show date of birth), immunization records, and be ready with emergency contact information. 
    All students, whether new or returning, are also required to provide proof of address when registering. Proof of address would require three items: 1) a valid rental/lease agreement, escrow papers or property tax statement; 2) current resident service bill such as electric, water, gas, garbage or cable bill (cell phone or other mail is not sufficient); and 3) current driver's license or State ID card showing address.
    Students applying from elsewhere within or outside of our district should pay attention to Transfer Guidelines. Families are encouraged to submit transfer applications during the Open Enrollment period (March) for the best chance of getting into the desired school.
