Kindergarten Registration Begins February 18, 2014
All children enrolling in kindergarten for the 2014-15 school year must be five years old by August 31, 2014. When registering a child for school, families should bring: proof of child’s birth date (birth or hospital certificate, passport); immunization information and child’s health history; and names and phone numbers of parents, physician and emergency contact when the parent/guardian cannot be reached.

Early learning is a top priority in the Sumner School District. As such, the District is excited to offer free full-time kindergarten programs at all elementary schools for the 2014-15 school year. Beginning in the 2014-15 school year, the District will no longer offer a part-time (red or blue) kindergarten program.

Research shows early learning is an integral part of student success. Superintendent, Dr. Sara Johnson notes, “Kindergarten is an opportunity to develop and strengthen foundational skills necessary for success in school and lifelong learning.” Full-time kindergarten students attend school every day and have the same school calendar as students in grades 1-5. Students enrolled in full-time kindergarten receive extra instruction time to learn basic skills for first grade. All children enrolling in kindergarten will participate in a screening process held later in the spring.

Families should contact their neighborhood school for registration information beginning February 18, 2014, or download a packet from the District Web site. Completed registration forms should be returned to the school or the Central Administration Office at 1202 Wood Avenue in downtown Sumner.

Sumner School District Announces Additional School Days
