Please note that kindergarten admissions is not first come, first served: there is no advantage to applying early, and all applications received by the deadline are treated the same.  

Want to learn more? Join us at our virtual events on elementary admissions on December 8, 13, January 12, 26, February 1, or 15. For event details, visit our website. In the weeks ahead, we'll send a series of updates and reminders.
