Welcome to Reeths-Puffer Schools

Kindergarten Registration

 

Kindergarten Round-Up

March 18 - McMillan Elementary
March 19 - Twin Lake Elementary
March 20 - Central Elementary and Reeths-Puffer Elementary

 

It's never too early to prepare your child for Kindergarten.  The reason to get a child ready is so he or she has a good start at "the big school." This time can be exciting and stressful for the whole family.  Children ask where they will be going and what they will be doing.  Parents have lots of questions too. Kindergarten Round-Up is the time to get those questions answered.

 

A new law has changed the entry age for Kindergarten students.
 

2014-2015 School Year

A child who is at least 5 years of age on October 1, 2014 is eligible to enroll in Kindergarten.

 

2015-2016 School Year

A child who is at least 5 years of age on September 1, 2015 is eligible to enroll in Kindergarten.

 

If your child is not eligible for Kindergarten enrollment per the guidelines specified but will be five years of age by December 1, you or a legal guardian may enroll your child in Kindergarten through the use of a waiver that must be submitted to the school by June 1.  No waivers will be offered after June 1, 2015. 

 

Each elementary school in the Reeths-Puffer School District will hold a Kindergarten Round-Up (see below for exact times for each building).  Information will be shared on transportation, food service, and a general overview of R-P's Kindergarten program. 

  

Kindergarten Round-Up is the time parents can turn in paperwork that is available a head of time (see right hand column) or you may pick up necessary paperwork at any elementary office.

Two sessions are being held at Central and Reeths-Puffer Elementary so the audience is smaller and conversation and tours are easier and quicker.  But the important thing is that parents attend a Kindergarten Round-Up. 
 

Free day care will be provided during Kindergarten Round-Up at all locations!

 

Breakfast and Lunch Programs:  Students will have the opportunity to participate in both the breakfast and lunch programs at their elementary building.

 

Kindergarten is a new and exciting time for your child. The goal of Reeths-Puffer Schools is to build on that excitement and create a positive atmosphere for life long learning.

 

  • If you miss Kindergarten Round-Up, call the school for your own personal tour.
          
  • Feel free to contact the building principal or secretary with questions.  Important forms and curriculum information is available in the right hand column of this web page.
