2019 - 2020 Kindergarten Information

 

Children must be 5 years old by August 31, 2019 in order to enter Kindergarten in
the 2019-2020 school year.

 

The 2019-2020 Kindergarten Survey is now open, and will be available until Friday, January 4, 2019.

 

ONLINE REGISTRATIONS CANNOT BE SUBMITTED BEFORE FEBRUARY 2019

 

In mid December you will receive a letter from us asking you to do an online survey.  The survey will ask you a few questions including if you would like your child's name entered into the lottery for full day kindergarten or if you only plan to send your child to half day kindergarten and a link to information regarding our Extended Care Program.  Families must be residents of Shrewsbury to be included into the lottery.  There is a fee for full day kindergarten. Currently (2018-2019) it is $3600.00 for the year with a possible increase for the 2019-2020 school year. You will be required to pay a monthly fee beginning on September 1, 2019 and each month through May 1, 2020.  (Financial aid is available to those who qualify, but applications for financial aid is not available until August 2019). 


In late January or early February (date to be determined) we will have the lottery drawings.  You will receive an email to let you know the lottery date once it has been scheduled. There is a lottery for each district (Coolidge, Floral, Paton & Spring).  All lottery students are placed on a wait list until we know the number of full day spots we will have available.  These lists will be posted on our website within a few days after the lottery.  Once we know how many full day spots are available we will send out a registration packet along with a letter letting you know your child’s school and session assignment.  All students from the lottery who do not get assigned to full day kindergarten, will remain on the wait list, and be assigned to a half day session and will be called as slots become available in the full day program.  Families opting for half day kindergarten will also receive this packet with your child’s school and session assignment.


This mailing will also provide details on the registration process which will take place in February, information regarding the Parent Forum, Screenings, Summer Program, etc.
