full day. so the schools fill up quick, no need to pay for fullday, so im guessing enrollment is higher than in some districts.
Quoting frndlyfn:

Is your school district doing full day or half day kinder classes?  We have full day .  Our school was one of the first that started full day and they are in their 3rd year of it.

What school is your home school? You should be guarenteed a spot in your home school.
If its choice all bets are off.

We didnt pay either but did have the choice if we wanted her in half day to switch to a different elementary school with the district providing transportation.  I am glad we stuck with full day since she has 3 different specialists that see her throughout the week.

its not choice but from what i hear it fills up quick so they send kids to a different school and wait for spots to open up. sounds insane. im hoping this year they have low enrollment... seems like a lot of kids started last year, so its possible most in the area are already in school and we'll get a spot haha. wishful thinking??

Awe man :/ well go to the school office on Tuesday and see if you can take care of it on Tuesday. My DS school does official kindergarten registration dates and then drop in registration after those dates during school hours.

Quoting ohmandy:

thats what im scared of, the one near us is awesome, the bus comes right in front of our house and i was told fills up fast. i thought i was being on top of things haha. the other school is good but much further (still not FAR but significantly further. ugh, im sooo mad at myself right now.


Quoting agrisham13mom:

Don't freak out lol you can of course still register for kindergarten the worst that is going to happen is that your child may lose a spot at his home school so he would have to go to another school in the district but that's all...

That wouldn't be a problem here.  We have registration dates in March, but you can honestly register your child any time for public school here.  Some parents wait until the day before school starts even, although I don't recommend that since schools need to know registration numbers to plan accordingly for the coming school year.
