The event allows parents to meet kindergarten teachers and staff while registering their children for kindergarten. Children who have attended private kindergarten or kindergarten in another district are also welcome to attend Round-Up to register for first grade.

During this event, we will check the children's hearing, speech and vision. A basic assessment will be administered by the Round-Up team. This tool will provide information about your child's development. Parents will be asked to complete necessary forms while their child is being assessed. Your child will be taken through the screening process by a Round-Up helper. Certified district personnel will administer the screenings and assessments.

To most accurately assess the children, parents are not permitted in the screening areas. There will be no exceptions. It is advised that parents explain to their children that they must go to the screening process alone. Children who are unable to separate from parents will not be screened. Parents will receive the information from the screenings several weeks after Round-Up concludes.

Beginning with the 2015-16 school year, and each year thereafter, the entry age for 1st grade shall be not less than six (6) years by September 1 of the school year in which the parent/guardian desires to have the child enrolled. The entry age for kindergarten shall be not less than five (5) years by September 1 of the school year in which the parent/guardian desires to have the child enrolled.
