Tahoe Truckee Unified School District announces dates for Kindergarten Round Up

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Enrollment for kindergartners entering elementary school in the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD) for the 2011-2012 school year will be held this month.

Parents considering sending their children to kindergarten next year may pick up enrollment packets at their choice of the district’s elementary schools prior to these meetings. While parents may list more than one school choice, there is no need to register at more than one school. Students are eligible if they reach the age of 5 on or before Dec. 2, 2011.

This is the perfect time to get a full understanding of each school’s kindergarten experience. Teachers and administrators will answer parent questions regarding the different kindergarten programs available in TTUSD and walk parents through a typical kindergarten day. Information on transportation and volunteer opportunities will also be presented. Additionally, school staffers will help parents determine if their young ones are emotionally ready for kindergarten. English Learner parents will learn about all the program and placement options for their English Learner children throughout the district, including information on the waiver process for those interested in an alternative program. Spanish translators will be present at these meetings.

Parents who attend the Kindergarten Round Up will be required to bring a copy of their child’s vaccination records, original legal birth certificate, copy of birth certificate, proof of address, and emergency contact information to complete the enrollment process.

For more information on the Kindergarten Round Up meetings, call any elementary school (listed below) or see the additional information and FAQs posted in the District News section of http://www.ttusd.org. A map of neighborhood school boundaries may also be found on the district’s website. Enrollment forms must be returned to school sites by Monday, April 25, 2011. For those schools with lotteries or waitlists, notification of acceptance will be the week of May 16, 2011.
