This explains the Kindergarten registration process for your child. If you know of anyone who has a child starting school in the fall and has not received this information, please share this information.

Who: Kindergarten students– must be (5) years-old on or before September 10th, 2017.

What: When you come to your neighborhood school for registration, you will complete the following:

  1. Provide proof of age through a certified birth certificate or other reliable proof of identity– must have to register
  2. Provide proof of current residence, e.g. rental agreement, tax statement and/or utility bill– must have to register
  3. Complete Helena School District registration form, including providing important emergency contact numbers

** Montana State law requires all students to be immunized against Diphtheria, Pertussis (whooping cough), Tetanus, Polio, Measles, and Mumps & Rubella (MMR). Exceptions are allowed for verified religious and medical reasons only.) Proof of immunizations must be provided on or before the first day of school .

Where: All students who are eligible for Kindergarten must enroll in the school within their home boundary/established residence area. If you are uncertain about which school your child will attend, please call 324-2004 for guidance.

When: You may begin registering your Kindergarten student on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, 8:00 AM-3:30 PM. We encourage parents and guardians to register their children as soon as possible, as registration for our elementary schools is based on a first come, first serve seat availability basis. Kindergarten Registration will continue until the start of school, August 2017.
