Kindergarten Eligibility & Preview Nights for the 2019-20 School Year

For the 2019-20 school year, a child must have his/her 5th birthday on or before September 1, 2019, to be eligible to attend Kindergarten.

Students currently attending Transitional Kindergarten in Ross Valley do not need to re-register.

Preview Nights will be held at each elementary school site.  Preview Night is an informational evening designed for parents/guardians (no children, please) to learn about the Kindergarten program and to get an overview of the total school program.  We look forward to seeing you there!

In-Person Registration

In-Person Registration begins Monday, February 4, 2019.  School offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm (except holidays).

In-person registration is completed at the student’s school of residence.  If you are unsure which school (Brookside, Hidden Valley, Manor, and Wade Thomas) is your child’s School of Residence, for attendance boundary information click here

Please gather the required documents, complete and print the following forms on your computer/hand-held device or by hand, and bring all items to In-Person Registration.  We do not accept registration items via fax, mail, or email.  

Please note that only completed registration packets are accepted and each is date/time stamped.  A completed registration packet includes the online Student Registration Forms on SchoolMint and the In-Person Forms and Documentation.

To assist the District in enrollment, staffing, and facilities planning, please complete the registration process by March 1 or as soon as possible.  Because many elementary grade levels and schools in the Ross Valley School District are impacted, if more students register at their school of residence than can be accommodated, even if by March 1, students may be assigned to another district school where space is available.  Any reassignments will be determined prior to the student’s first day of attendance.
