REGISTER NOW FOR KINDERGARTEN STARTING SEPTEMBER 2016
Parents: now’s the time to register if your child will be starting Junior or Senior Kindergarten in September 2016 at a Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board (KPR) school.
Parents and guardians can print student registration forms ahead of time from www.kprschools.ca, and bring the completed forms with them when they register their child at school.The school offices, in turn, offer practical information and tips to help parents prepare their children for the transition to school.
To start school in September 2016, the following requirements apply:
Junior Kindergarten – child must be four years of age by December 31, 2016.
Kindergarten – child must be five years of age by December 31, 2016.
When registering their children, parents and guardians should bring a birth certificate or other proof of the child’s age, proof of address, and current immunization information. As office times may vary among schools, KPR encourages parents to call their local school ahead of time to confirm the best time of day for registering their children.
Parents who are unsure of which school their child will attend can visit:
If parents or guardians are worried about their child’s readiness for Junior or Senior Kindergarten, they should contact their child’s school principal as early as possible. Schools are a good source of information and community contacts, and they may be able to help parents get support for children with special needs.
