Kindergarten registration opens Feb. 23, 2016

posted Feb 24, 2016, 10:09 AM by Gubser Elementary

 Registration for fall kindergarten programs in Salem-Keizer Public Schools opens on Tuesday, February 23, 2016. Students who turn five on or before September 10, 2016, are eligible to register. All elementary schools in Salem-Keizer offer free, full-day kindergarten.

 Parents are asked to register students soon to help the district prepare an adequate number of classrooms, supplies, etc. for the fall.

 How to register

To register, please visit the school and pick up a registration packet. If you’re unsure what school is assigned to serve your residence address, please visit the district’s school finder page: www.salemkeizer.org/content/boundary-information

 Parents must complete and sign the forms in the registration packet (registration form, home language survey, immunization form) and provide:

1.      Proof of residence address. Examples of documents accepted include a copy of a utility bill, driver’s license with current address, copy of rental agreement, etc.

2.      Original birth certificate for the child. The school will make a copy and return the original to the parent.

 Help your student get ready

Parents can help students get ready for kindergarten by helping them:

·        Hold a pencil, crayons and scissors correctly

·        Practice writing his/her name

·        Learn the ABC’s and how to count to twenty

·        Name and identify basic shapes, such as square, triangle and circle

·        Learn how to take turns and share with others

·        How to use the bathroom and wash hands independently


Please contact your school with questions about registering for kindergarten.

In-District Transfer Policy Change 2/10/16

posted Feb 16, 2016, 3:52 PM by Gubser Elementary

Dear Salem-Keizer Families,

In an effort to better allow schools to serve students, balance class sizes, staff accurately and align transfer windows, we are changing the In-District process to include two distinct windows for transfers at the elementary level.  A similar process and change occurred at the secondary level two years ago.  Elementary transfer requests will now be accepted March 1-March 30 for the transfer to occur at the beginning of the following school year, and November 1-November 30 for the transfer to occur after Winter Break.  Due to the shortened notice of the change we will extend the Spring transition window this year only from March 1-May 30th.  If you are considering a transfer to another Salem-Keizer school for next year, please submit your request to your home school before the May 30th deadline to be considered for approval.

Thank you for your partnership and for sharing your children with us every day.

Salem Keizer School District

posted Feb 11, 2016, 1:28 PM by Gubser Elementary

Our school will hold a kindergarten orientation meeting on May 10 at 6:00 pm.

Please help us spread the word by telling your friends and neighbors who have kindergarten-age children about this important meeting.

At kindergarten orientation, parents will learn about bus transportation, how to help their children prepare for school, what their students will experience during a typical school day, and much more.

Kindergarten is a free, full-day program. Kindergarten students attend school the same hours as first through fifth grade students. Our school is excited to welcome the next class of kindergarten students for a full day of learning and growing!

Registration is open for fall kindergarten beginning Monday, February 22, 2015. Parents can register in advance of orientation, or pick up registration materials during the meeting.

Thank you for helping us spread the word out about kindergarten orientation!

Kinder Fall 2016

posted Feb 4, 2016, 9:04 AM by Gubser Elementary

In fall of 2016, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will offer free full-day kindergarten.  Half day kindergarten is not offered in Salem-Keizer, however, many private kindergarten providers offer half-day programs.  Children are not required to attend kindergarten, but attendance is strongly recommended.

Registration for fall 2016 kindergarten opens Tuesday, February 23, 2016.

Parents are asked to register for kindergarten as soon as possible.  The district needs to know how many students will be attending and where in order to prepare an adequate number of classrooms.  Early registration helps make sure kindergarten students will have a comfortable start to the school year.

Children who will turn five years old on or before September 10, 2016, are eligible to register.  To register, please visit the school assigned to serve your residence address and pick up a registration packet.

To find the school that serves your residence, visit the boundary information page.

For more information about registering for kindergarten, please call your school or visit the Kindergarten page on the Salem Keizer Public School website.
