TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN INTEREST WAIT LIST
Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June
1st and September 1st, 2015 who wish to enroll their
child into a TK class, MUST place their name on a
District Interest Wait List. On our District website,
select Parents, under Programs, select Transitional
Kindergarten. Then select TK Interest Wait List to put
your child's name on the list. Please note that the TK
Interest Wait List opens March 2, 2015 at 8:00 am. The
assigned TK school site will notify parents on the
Interest List of an opening in TK. The parent will then
be given 48 hours to enroll. Due to increased numbers of
students required to enroll in TK, please note space is
very limited and will be determined on a first-come,
first served basis.
It's going to be a grrrrreat Grizzly week! See
