School Closure Registration Change

There are two ways to register. 

  1. Fill out the online form
  2. Completed registration packets can be dropped off in the secure box in the Enrollment Center lobby from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Parents must submit the paperwork in a sealed white envelope available in the lobby and write Early Kinder on the envelope with the date and time or email the forms as an attachment to John Conway at john-conway@scusd.edu


School sites will consider student placement in SCUSD’s Early Kinder Program based upon the following:

  • Students born September 2nd through and including December 2nd are eligible for Early Kinder not kindergarten
  • Students shall not be enrolled into Early Kinder if the child turns age 5 after December 2nd
  • There is no separate priority for November, October, or September born children. These 3 month spans of birth dates have equal access to the Early Kinder Programs. Children born within this 3 month span have equal access to the Early Kinder Program.

Parents requesting admission to criteria based school must meet admission requirements. (Example-Alice Birney Waldorf Inspired K-8)

Due to space availability, parent’s request for placement in SCUSD’s Early Kinder Program does not guarantee student placement in the school or program requested. If over enrollment occurs, a special lottery will be held. All September 2nd, October, November, and December 1st and 2nd born students shall have their names placed in an equable lottery at the school site.
