When Can My Child Start Kindergarten?
To register for kindergarten in the 2019-20 school year, your child must be five years old on or before Dec. 31, 2019.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
