Kindergarten: 2015-2016

Posted in News & Announcements

It is important that we obtain an accurate count of all children qualifying for kindergarten in the Canyons School District for the 2015-2016 school year. If you have a child who will be five years of age ON or BEFORE September 1, 2015, the child qualifies for next year’s kindergarten program. State law requires that all school districts in Utah abide by the same September 1st entrance cut-off date. 

We will hold a Kindergarten Open House in April 2015.  Please complete the kindergarten form and return it to our office.  We will then mail you detailed information regarding our open house in March. Our office is available to answer any questions you may have, 801-826-8425.
