Kindergarten & TK Pre-Registration

2017-2018 School Year

Pre-registration of children eligible for TK and kindergarten in August 2017 will be conducted in all Mt. Diablo Unified School District elementary schools on a first-come basis starting Tuesday, February 7, 2017. The hours of registration: TBD.
 
Children who will reach the age of five (5) years on or before September 1, 2017, are eligible for kindergarten in August. Children who will reach the age of five (5) years between September 2 and December 2, 2017, are eligible for transitional kindergarten in August. Parents should bring the following documents with them: an original birth certificate or some other official documentary proof of the child’s birthdate; three original documents to verify where the child resides (one must be a photo ID); and a written immunization record from a health care provider indicating that all immunization requirements listed below have been met. If you forget any one of these documents you will be asked to come back when you can provide all documents.
 
Check the District website at www.mdusd.org or call your child’s school to verify documents needed as proof of residency. Please bring any completed school entry physical examination and dental examination.
 
Parents are urged to register their children at this time in order to assist school personnel in making plans for the coming year. If it is not known which school the child should attend, parents may access the district’s website at www.mdusd.org or call the District Office at 682-8000, ext. 4062. Any other questions concerning pre-registration procedures should be directed to the school.
