Schedule Your 2019-20 Kindergarten Registration Appointment for Feb. 18, Make Plans to Attend the Incoming Kindergarten Parents Forum on Jan. 30
Hi5 LogoIt is here already! North Hills School District families are encouraged to schedule kindergarten registration appointments for the 2019-20 school year NOW. Kindergarten registration for the 2019-20 school year will be held on Feb. 18 from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. in all elementary buildings. Our registration paperwork process has changed this year as NHSD now offers online registration and forms for much of our required information.

NEW FOR 2019-20! Students registering for kindergarten must be five years of age before August 1, 2019, to be enrolled for the 2019-20 school year. For the first year of this policy change, students who turn five years of age in August and seek admission to kindergarten shall take a kindergarten readiness assessment. If the student passes, they shall be granted admission to kindergarten. If the child does not pass the assessment, the parent may request a conference with the district’s superintendent to discuss the results as well as kindergarten expectations. This change to School Board Policy 201 was enacted in December 2018, will take full effect in the 2020-21 school year and can be reviewed online

Please note that per School Board Policy 205, children who are not registered to attend school by June 1 may be assigned to a district school building outside of their attendance area. Therefore, the district strongly recommends that 2019-20 kindergarten students be registered on the Feb. 18 enrollment date.

Please follow these steps to register your child for kindergarten:

Please disregard information on our New Student Registration page linked above on calling your school to schedule an appointment as all Feb. 18 kindergarten registration appointments must be scheduled online.
