Rescue District opening kindergarten enrollment
Rescue Union School District welcomes regular Kindergarten, Junior (Transitional) Kindergarten, new student registration and transfer requests for the 2014-15 school year. Registration will begin on Feb. 12 at all schools in the district based upon designated boundaries. To find your school of attendance please check our boundary map at schoolworksgis.com/Rescue/schoollocator.html or contact the district office at (530) 677-4461 for assistance. Enrollment packets and transfer request forms are now available to parents at all school sites.
Students must be 5 years of age on or before Sept. 1, 2014, to enter Kindergarten. Students must be 5 years of age on or before Dec. 2, 2014, to be eligible for Junior Kindergarten. Priority for Junior Kindergarten will be given to students with their fifth birthdays between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2, 2014; however, students who turn 5 between Dec. 3, 2014, and March 1, 2015, 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.
Students (and siblings) attending the Rescue Union School District on a current intradistrict or interdistrict transfer, must renew/submit the application by March 20, 2014. Parents will be notified about specific school placement as soon as it can be ascertained that there is capacity at the requested grade level/school.
