Kindergarten Orientation May 10, 2015

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.
