It’s time to think about Kindergarten Registration!!
York Elementary is mailing information this week to eligible Kindergarteners. If you do not receive a packet in the mail, please contact York Elementary at (402) 362-1414.
According to Nebraska law, children are eligible to attend Kindergarten the year that they turn five on or before July 31. This is called a “cut-off date.” School districts are allowed to enroll a child who missed the cut-off date but turns five between August 1 and October 15. Parents who are interested in enrolling their child early should contact York Elementary as soon as possible to ask about the procedure for early entry assessment.
