Parents in the Richland School District may register their children for kindergarten at their neighborhood elementary schools.
The child’s state certified birth certificate and an immunization record listing dates that shots were received are required, as well as proof of address (i.e. utility bill, rental agreement). To be eligible for kindergarten, the child must be 5 years old on or before Aug. 31, 2015. For more information, call 509-967-6003.
Parents are encouraged to enroll their children as early as possible. Early enrollment helps the district to plan more effectively for the number of kindergarten teachers needed at each school in the fall.
For children who turn 5 between Sept. 1 and Dec. 1, but who are ready socially, emotionally and intellectually for kindergarten, early entrance testing is offered in mid-August. The test is offered once per year, and the registration deadline is July 31.
For information regarding the test, fees and registration, call the assessment office at 509-967-6025.
