Kindergarten Registration is now open for the 19-20 school year. Child must be 5 years old BEFORE September 1, 2019.
What if my child misses the cutoff date by a few days?
Unfortunately, if your child does not turn 5 before September 1, 2019, you will need to enroll your child for the following school year. We do not perform any testing for students who miss the cutoff date.
Can I enroll my child now, even though they have not turned 5 yet?
Yes, as long as your child will be 5 before September 1, 2019, you may enroll them now. In fact, we encourage you to do so, the earlier the better.
Is Kindergarten full day?
Yes! The 19-20 school year will be our inaugural year of offering full day kindergarten.
When is the first day of school for 19-20?
The first day of school will be Monday, August 26, 2019
What does the process for kindergarten registration entail?
Kindergarten registration is a 2 step process:
Step 1- involves the enrolling of your student using the online link. Upon completing the online enrollment form, you will be prompted to schedule an appointment using the online calendar. That appointment is for you to come and personally meet with the District Registrar, review the information you entered, provide all documentation required. Upon approval of your child's enrollment, you will select a date and time to visit Gockley for their portion of enrollment.
Step 2- you will be given an appointment to attend the last portion of registration at Gockley Elementary which will be held April 8, 9, 10. During this appointment, you will meet with various staff members, school nurse, guidance, etc and your child will meet with a reading specialist who will conduct a brief assessment on your child.
When do we receive classroom assignments?
The school mailing which contains your child's teacher assignment, lunch information, busing information,etc is typically mailed out around the middle of August.
Is there an orientation for the new kindergarten students?
Yes! Date is to be determined, however there is an orientation set just a few days prior to the first day of school. You will be able to see your child's classroom, walk through the building and talk to staff members.
What are the school day hours?
