Parents of children who will be five years old by Sept. 1, may register their children at 9 a.m. Thursday, May 13, at all 21 Denton Independent School District elementary schools’ Kindergarten Registration.
To enroll in kindergarten for the coming school year, a child must be five years old on or before Sept. 1, 2010. Parents will be able to register their students and receive information on transportation, Extended School Day and the PTA.
To register their children, parents should bring the following information: Birth certificates, social security cards, updated immunization records, proof of residency (such as a utility bill) and three emergency contacts.
“The purpose of these registrations is to provide an orientation for new students and their parents and to allow them to register for the district’s kindergarten or pre-school programs,’’ said Dr. Roger Rutherford, assistant superintendent for academic programs.
For the past 11 years, Denton ISD has provided all-day kindergarten. The kindergarten program in Denton ISD includes literacy activities, math concepts, science experiments and social interactions with other children in the classroom.
Four schools, including E.P. Rayzor Elementary in Lantana, will be piloting an online registration at the school.
For more information, contact the designated elementary school:
Blanton Elementary, 9501 Stacee Lane – (940) 369-0700
E.P. Rayzor Elementary, 377 Rayzor Road – (940) 369-4100
For any parents who are unable to attend the Kindergarten Roundup, they should call the school for enrollment information or stop by during school hours of 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
