Kindergarten Registration

  • For more information please email info@thompsonschools.org

    Contact your elementary school to inquire about documents you will need to provide, and when you can bring them.

    NOTE: New students to the district: Bring proof of residence, birth certificate, immunization records, and previous school records if not uploaded during online registration.

    Entrance age

    A child may enter kindergarten if five years old on or before October 1 of the year of enrollment. Children who do not meet the district's entrance age requirement for kindergarten may be accepted if transferring from another kindergarten program, if the principal or designee determines that placement of the child in kindergarten is appropriate. A child four years old on or before the district's start date for Kindergarten and identified as a highly gifted student, in accordance with applicable state law, may enroll if the early entrance committee determines that placement of the child is appropriate.

     

    SCHOOL IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

    Colorado law requires all students attending Colorado schools to be vaccinated against certain diseases unless a medical or non-medical exemption is filed. Parents have the right to exempt their child from school immunization requirements. Parents need to submit a signed statement of personal or religious exemption annually. A medical exemption requires a certification signed by a licensed healthcare provider and needs to only be submitted once.

    For more information about vaccine requirements, resources and exemptions, please visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's School Immunization page.
