Transitional Kindergarten (TK):

Students must turn 5 between September 2-December 2. Kindergarten age-eligible students are allowed to choose TK if their 5th birthday is between June 1st-September 1st; however, they must sign the Kindergarten Continuance Form verifying that the parent/guardian agrees to have his/her child continue in kindergarten for one additional year. Students may not be promoted directly from TK to 1st grade.

For students with their 5th birthday after September 1, they must enter TK on or after their 5th birthday. They must sign the Kinder Continuance Form.  If a student turns 5 after September 1st, entering kindergarten is not an option, they must enroll in TK. To enroll in Kindergarten, students must turn 5 on or before September 1st.
