Three Bullhead City School District grade schools will be enrolling and registering new kindergarten students over four days in May for the fall semester. The annual Kindergarten Round-Up is for new students who will turn five years old on or before August 31 this year.
Kindergarten Round-Up will be held at Desert Valley, Diamondback and Sunrise Elementary Schools on May 10 through 13 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The first letter of a student’s last name will determine which date to attend.
Each campus individualizes its Kindergarten Round-Up program. Students will be screened to determine the best classroom placement for them.
“Parents and guardians should bring a child’s birth certificate, immunization records, proof of residency, parent or guardian ID, and any applicable legal paperwork,” said Jennifer Lott, BCSD’s director of educational services.
Advance registration is required to make an appointment for each child while COVID safeguards remain in place. The three separate registration links are listed on the BCSD website (www.crsk12.org) and the District Facebook page. Dates are May 10 (A-F), May 11 (G-L), May 12 (M-R) and May 13 (S-Z).
Lott added that it is important for families to start the school registration process early and not wait until the last minute. It is also an opportunity for parents to find out what a child should know before starting kindergarten, and what school changes have occurred since older children may have gone through previous Kindergarten Round-Ups.
The fall semester for the 2021-2022 Bullhead City Elementary school year starts August 4 following a two-month summer break.
Additional information about Kindergarten Round-Up is available at each of the three Bullhead City elementary schools, or at the District office, 928-758-3961.
