Kindergarten registration tomorrow

Registration for kindergarten students and first-graders new to Westfield Washington Schools for the 2013-14 school year will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday at each elementary school. Children need to be registered at the elementary school they will attend.

After careful consideration and discussion, it has been decided that Westfield Washington Schools will not be offering a half-day kindergarten class for the 2013-14 school year. All kindergarten classes for 2013-14 will be full-day classes. Officials said this decision was based on, among other factors, the increasing standards and common core requirements of kindergarten students.

A child must be five years of age or older on Sept. 1 to enter kindergarten. 

The district offers Before & After Care, childcare before school, after school, during holiday breaks and in the summer at each of the district’s K-4 elementary schools as well as at Westfield Intermediate School (no before school services available at this location only).
