ELK GROVE, Calif. – January 3, 2018 – Kindergarten (K) registration for students who live within the boundaries of the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) and will turn five years old on or before September 1, 2018 will begin Thursday, January 4, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. at all elementary schools. Transitional Kindergarten (TK) registration for students who live within the boundaries of the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) and will turn five years old on or between September 2 and December 2, 2018 will also begin Thursday, January 4, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. at all elementary schools.
TK and Kindergarten registration begins each year at the beginning of January. To register, there are three main steps:
- On or after the start of registration, pick up a registration packet from your home school. The packet will be time-stamped and dated by the school office staff.
- Complete the registration packet, including the required documents listed below.
- Return your completed registration packets by the first Monday in February in order for the time and date stamp to be honored.
With regard to registration priority and placement, although most families who turn in their registration materials by the first Monday in February are likely to get into their home school, EGUSD is not able to guarantee placement for every child at their home school. Due to crowded conditions in Elk Grove Unified, there is a possibility that your child may be reassigned to another Elk Grove Unified elementary school. Priority will be given to packets returned on time, based on the time and date stamp.
Required documents are the student’s birth certificate, immunization record, and proof of residence within the district. Two forms of residence documents are required for initial enrollment for all K-12 students and those are as follows:
