TK-K Registration Starts Thursday, January 9, 2020 for the 2020-2021 School Year
ELK GROVE, Calif. – November 22, 2019 – The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) welcomes and invites parents with children ready for Kindergarten and/or Transitional Kindergarten to register this coming January. Parents of Kindergarten (K) children (age five years old on or before September 1, 2020) or Transitional Kindergarten (TK) children (age five years old on or between September 2 and December 2, 2020) and who live within the district’s boundaries can begin registering for TK or K on Thursday, January 9, 2020 at all 42 EGUSD elementary schools.
Registration materials can be picked up at all EGUSD elementary schools starting January 9th. With the success of the District’s newly implemented electronic randomized selection process that went into effect last year for year-round schools, all elementary schools will now use this process for Kindergarten registration. However, because TK programs are only at certain school sites, TK welcome packets will remain date and time stamped and are due back by February 13, 2020.
For the 2020-2021 school year, parents no longer need to wait in line to have their Kindergarten registration packet date stamped. Now, all registration packets must be turned in to a student’s resident school by Thursday, February 13, 2020. All Kindergarten registration packets will be submitted for the electronic randomized selection process. Due to crowded conditions in Elk Grove Unified, there is a possibility that a child may be reassigned to another Elk Grove Unified elementary school. EGUSD is not able to guarantee placement for every child at their home school.
