Ripon Unified School District’s Kindergarten Orientation is set for Tuesday, Feb. 25, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose room at Park View Elementary School.
Topics to be covered at the orientation include district placement and attendance policies, transportation, immunization requirements, and documents required for kindergarten registration.
Kindergarten registration is on Tuesday, March 11, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose room at Park View Elementary School. Children are eligible to begin kindergarten if they will be five years old by Sept. 1, 2014. Also, students who turn five between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2 are placed in the Transitional Kindergarten (TK) class in 2014/2015. TK registration happens concurrently with kindergarten registration. Prior to registration, forms will be on-line and available for parents to complete and bring with them to registration (www.riponusd.net under Enrollment). Forms will also be available for completion at the registration. All registration forms must be completed and turned in by Friday, March 14, at 4 p.m. Completed registration packets may be turned in at any elementary school office.
Parents enrolling their child in kindergarten will be given the opportunity to request a school of attendance. Children with siblings already enrolled in the requested school will be enrolled first. The remainder of the requests will be prioritized by a random drawing. Children will be enrolled in the requested school in the order determined by the drawing until the school’s capacity is reached. Remaining children will be placed on the transfer list for the requested school by random selection and then assigned to schools below capacity.
