Cypress, TX News – Kindergarten, LEP preregistration scheduled for March 26

Cypress, TX News (March 24, 2014) – Kindergarten preregistration for 2014-2015 classes will be held at all elementary schools on March 26 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m.

A child must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014 to be eligible for the full-day program (with no exceptions). To register, parents must provide the school with the following documents: a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate from the Bureau of Vital Statistics; a current immunization record; proof of residency (e.g., a lease agreement or a gas, electric or water bill); a photo ID; and a social security card for each child, if available.

 

For additional information on where to register kindergarten students, parents can contact their neighborhood elementary school. A student currently enrolled in the district’s prekindergarten program will be automatically registered for kindergarten. Therefore, there is no need for parents of current prekindergarten students to attend the kindergarten registration on March 26.

Parents of LEP students—students who are unable to speak and comprehend the English language—may preregister their student on March 26 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. at the prekindergarten campus in their attendance zone. LEP students must be present at the time of preregistration to determine, through testing, whether or not the student qualifies for the program. To be eligible for the half-day prekindergarten program, students must be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014.

The prekindergarten program is currently being offered at the following 47 campuses:

  • Adam, Andre’, Ault, Bane, Bang, Black, Copeland, Danish, Duryea, Emery, Emmott, Farney, Fiest, Francone, Frazier, Gleason, Hamilton, Hairgrove, Hemmenway, Holbrook, Holmsley, Horne, Jowell, Kirk, Lamkin, Lee, Lieder, Lowery, Matzke, McFee, Metcalf, Millsap, Moore, Owens, Post, Postma, Reed, Rennell, M. Robinson, A. Robison, Sheridan, Swenke, Tipps, Walker, Willbern, Wilson and Yeager.
