PLEASE CHECK BACK HERE AFTER MARCH 1, 2021, FOR UPDATES ON KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION FOR THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR
When can my child enroll in Kindergarten?
Children who will be 5 years old on or before September 1 of any new school year are eligible to enter Kindergarten in Coeur d'Alene Public Schools. Idaho Code 33-201 defines "school age" as including all students that reside in the state of Idaho, between the ages of five (5) and twenty-one (21) years. The age of five (5) years shall be attained when the fifth anniversary of birth occurs on or before the first day of September of the school year in which the child is to enroll in kindergarten. For a child enrolling in the first grade, the age of six (6) years must be reached on or before the first day of September of the school year in which the child is to enroll.
What to Provide
- Child's certified birth certificate
- Child's immunization records
- Family's proof of residence (such as a rent receipt or utility bill)
- Name and phone number of two or three emergency contacts
- Health history with list of allergies and current medications
All students registering at any of our schools are required to provide an immunization certification statement stating the type, number, and dates of the immunizations received. (Per policy 3525.) Attendance at school may be denied to any child who does not provide an immunization record or proof of exemption. Any student denied attendance will not be allowed to attend any schools within this District until he or she is in compliance with this policy.
