Register for Preschool & Kindergarten April 9

Families looking to enroll their children in preschool or kindergarten for fall 2021 can do so on Friday, April 9, from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at each of our elementary schools. 

There are a few things you should know about registration:

  • Kindergarten is open to children who will be five years old by September 1. Preschool is open to children who will be four years old by September 1. 

  • You will register at the school at which your child will attend this fall, determined by either your home or your daycare address. To find the school for your child, please refer to our Attendance Zone document. 

  • If you want your child to ride the bus to and from school, they will need to attend the school within your attendance zone. 

There are also a few key points to consider about Alturas in particular: 

  • Alturas is a magnet school, focused on helping students become biliterate in English and Spanish. The attendance zone is between Highway 20 and south of Ohio Gulch (not including Ohio Gulch). 

  • There is no preschool available at Alturas. Preschool students in the Woodside area who live north of Winter Fox Lane will attend Hailey Elementary. Those who live south of Winter Fox Lane will attend Bellevue Elementary.

When you attend the registration event, please bring the following:

  • An original, state-certified birth certificate

  • Up-to-date immunization records

  • Proof of residence in Blaine County

  • Income verification (for preschool registration only)

Finally, please know that social distancing and a mask requirement will be in place at each school building. We ask that you follow our health and safety protocols when you register.
