Snoqualmie Valley parents reminded to register 5 year-olds for Kindergarten

Kindergarten registration is now open for all children in the Snoqualmie Valley School District who will reach age 5 by August 31.

Parents can register their children at their home school offices. To find out where your home school office is, visit the district's site.

In the Snoqualmie Valley School District, there are two options for Kindergarten instruction:

• Half-day Kindergarten is available to all eligible students at all district elementary schools. There is no fee to attend the morning or afternoon sessions. Half-day students will attend either the AM or PM sessions Mondays through Thursdays, and an extended session every other Friday throughout the year.

• Full-day Kindergarten is an optional program provided on a limited, space-available basis. Parents must pay a tuition fee, to cover the difference between the state-funded half-day program and the full-day session. Parents interested in the full-day Kindergarten should add their names to the full-day Kindergarten list at their home schools. A lottery drawing determines which students will be enrolled in the full-day program. Families participating in the lottery will be notified in March.

When registering your child, be sure to bring your child's birth certificate, and proof of immunization. According to state law, immunizations must be up to date prior to the first day of school. Visit this web page for the 2011-12 Immunization requirements.
