Kindergarten Registration Information

Welcome to the Turnagain Elementary and to Kindergarten!

We look forward to having kindergarten children begin their first day of school on Monday, August 28, 2017, five days later than students in grades 1 through 12.  This delayed start will allow time for the kindergarten teacher to meet with you and your child during an individual conference.  Conferences will be scheduled on  August  21st , 22nd , 23rd, 24th, or 25th 2017.

These conferences are designed to help you and your child get off to a great start.  You will have a chance to meet the teacher, tour the school, get accustomed to the classroom and meet other school staff, all of which assist in easing any first-day anxieties you or your child might have.

            Birth Certificate(Child must be 5 on or before September 1st, 2017)
