SPOKANE VALLEY – The East Valley School District will begin taking registration for children who’ll enter kindergarten this fall.
There isn’t a registration deadline, but the district doesn’t register students during summer when school offices are closed. Parents should register students at their neighborhood schools before the end of the school year. At Trent, Trentwood, Otis Orchards and East Farms elementaries, the last day of school is June 13. School secretaries return Aug. 13, and school will begin Aug. 27.
At Continuous Curriculum School, the last day of school is June 27 and the school secretary will return July 29. The first day of school is Aug. 12.
Children must be 5 years old by Aug. 31 to enter kindergarten; a certified birth certificate from the Bureau of Vital Statistics is needed. State law requires all students to be immunized before enrolling; bring an up-to-date immunization record showing the child has received varicella (chicken pox), DTaP/DTP/DT/TD, polio, MMR and HEP B.
For more information, call your neighborhood school office.
