Mark your calendar--kindergarten registration in Puyallup begins next month.
Evening registration will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19. Daytime registration begins on Wednesday, March 20 and continues through the remainder 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, 2013 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.
