When does your school start vs. the B-day cut off to begin.

Like our is stupid. School starts on Aug. 9 BUT the cut off for stating school is 5 by Sept. 1. So basically you have a handful of 4 year olds starting K.

  • ours is even more stupid.
    schools start on the 16th this year (most of them anyways) but the cut off is December 1st. so i have two boys and they are 13 months apart. but because of the cut off they are two grade levels apart.

  • School starts August 13th and the cut off is September 1st. However, from what I have noticed there are really only one or two 4 year olds. Most of the kids are already 5. In fact, my son is starting kindergarten and he will be 6 soon.

  • This year school starts on Sept 1 and the cutoff has been Sept 1 for as long as I can remember. That was the cutoff when I started Kindergarten in 1976!!!!

  • i'm not sure about the cut off but the first full day of school is august 9th and they have a half a day on aug 6th... what is the purpose of half days?!?! they did the same crap for pre-school that he went to last year.. waste of time!

  • Its realy simple here, its DEC.31st. So the year you turn 5, you go to kindergarten, regardless of when your bday is. It can be a bit strange, when my dd has a bday in the beginning of january, and there are boys with december bdays, you can sure tell the difference in maturity. But there havnt' been any problems, some people with december kids will wait a year, most of those waiting being boys, but not always.
