UPDATE: There has been a slight change to the schedule for our incoming kindergarteners' start date for the 2022-2023 school year. We will be having a staggered start where half the students (those whose last name begins with A - L) will begin on Friday, August 19th and the other half (students whose last names begin with M - Z) will begin on Monday, August 22nd. All kindergarten students will attend on Tuesday, August 23rd.
WHO CAN REGISTER FOR KINDERGARTEN?
Students who will be five years of age on or before August 1, 2022 are eligible to attend kindergarten in the 2022-2023 school year. Registration is only required for those students who have not attended at the Little Bucks Preschool during the 2021-2022 school year.
To register your child, please click on the Final Forms link to complete this process.
WHAT HAPPENS AT KINDERGARTEN SCREENING?
Parents will report to the Buckeye Primary School at their scheduled screening time. There will be a sign-in area in the lobby directly beyond the main doors. Upon arrival please report to this area, not the primary offices.
During the screening session, parents will meet separately with office staff to attend an informational meeting in the Media Center while students will be assessed by our team of education professionals. Parents will be in this meeting for the entire one hour and fifteen minutes allotted per screening session. We will also collect the necessary registration documents at this time for those students new to our district. For those parents without access to the online registration portal, we will provide computers during this time to enable them to register their child.
Kindergarten screening will be held on March 23rd, April 5th and April 14th. To schedule a screening appointment, please call 330-722-8257 ext. 4137 or ext. 4139.
