Rescue Union School District welcomes regular kindergarten, junior (transitional) kindergarten, new student registration and transfer requests for the 2013-14 school year.
Students must be 5 years of age on or before Oct. 1 to enter kindergarten. Students must be 5e on or before Dec. 2 to be eligible for the junior kindergarten program. Priority for junior kindergarten will be given to students with their 5th birthdays between Oct. 2 and Dec. 2, however, students who turn 5 between Dec. 3 and March 1, 2014 are eligible to participate in the junior kindergarten as they turn 5. These students will be put on a waiting list in order of birth date and placed on a space available basis.
The following documentation is required for registration: an immunization record, county certificate of live birth (with county seal), proof of district residency (escrow papers, telephone or utility bill, rental agreement). If applicable, signed intradistrict or interdistrict transfer forms and current court orders regarding custody must also be turned in with packets.
Please bring in original documents and the school will make copies. Registration packets will only be accepted with all required documentation and forms. It is not necessary for immunizations to be complete at the time of registration. Copies will be made of current immunization records at registration and again as completed before the child starts school.
For those interested in the Montessori Program at Rescue Elementary School, the Visual and Performing Arts Program at Jackson Elementary School or the COOL School (a combination on-line/in-class blended learning program for grades 3-8); information and brochures are available on the district’s Website.
Students must be registered at their home school in the attendance area where they reside.
