03-12-12: Kindergarten registration continues this spring

Kindergarten registration continues this spring for students who will enter the district for the first time in fall 2012.

Daytime registration begins on Wednesday, March 21 and continues through the end of the end of the school year. Check with local schools for daytime registration hours, as times may vary.

Parents of all students entering kindergarten should register at their neighborhood school or at the school near their daycare center. Early registration is necessary to plan for appropriate staffing levels.

Kindergarten registration packets are available at elementary schools the week prior to registration but will not be accepted until registration begins.

The following are required at the time of registration:

  • Proof of the child’s birthday, such as a birth certificate. Children must be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2012 to be eligible to register for kindergarten. The district does not test for early entrance.
  • Proof of address (recent utility bill, lease agreement, etc.).
  • Proof that the child has had the state-required immunizations, including the dates given.

Immunizations required by state law are listed on the school district website at www.puyallup.k12.wa.us.

Required immunizations can be obtained from a family physician or by contacting the MultiCare Mobile Health Services at (253) 697-4010.
