Rescue Union School District welcomes regular Kindergarten, Junior Kindergarten, new student registration and transfer requests for the 2011-12 school year.
Registration will begin on Feb. 14.
Enrollment packets and transfer request forms will be available to parents at all school sites on Febr.y 4. All registrations and transfer requests received during the priority registration window, Feb. 14 through March 4, will receive the same first priority. If a requested program or grade is oversubscribed a lottery will be held. Registration packets and transfer requests received after March 4 will be placed according to date received.
Students must be 5 years of age on or before Dec. 2, 2011, to enter either the regular Kindergarten or Junior Kindergarten program at the beginning of the school year. The Junior Kindergarten program is a two-year Kindergarten program designed for students who may have late fall birthdays or may not be quite ready for the full academic Kindergarten program. Students who turn 5 during the 2011-12 school year after Dec. 2 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.
If you are interested in our Montessori Program at Rescue Elementary School or our Visual and Performing Arts Program at Jackson Elementary School brochures are available at each of our school sites. Students must be registered at their home school in the attendance area where they reside. Visit www.rescue.k12.ca.us for additional information including school contact information, maps and forms.
