Sending your student off to Kindergarten can be a time filled with emotion. We celebrate the growth and development of our children and yet, wish for them to remain safely within our reach. The Sioux Falls School District is committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for your child to begin their educational journey.
Students are eligible to attend Kindergarten, according to South Dakota Codified Law, if they are 5 years old on or before September 1 of the current school year. If your child meets these criteria, we would welcome them to one of our 23 elementary buildings. Please follow these links to begin the registration process.
Kindergarten registration for the 2022-2023 school year begins February 1, 2022. If your child turns 5 on or before September 1, 2022, they are eligible to be part of the class of 2035!
At the Sioux Falls School District, we are committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for your child to begin their educational journey. We understand this can be a time filled with emotion. To help ease the transition to the classroom for both parent and child, we have two upcoming opportunities that will surely answer any questions you may have and help resolve any anxieties associated with this major milestone.
Here Comes Kindergarten, will be offered at Susan B. Anthony on Thursday, February 17th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. This event will help you and your child learn more about the registration process, what a typical day will look like, kindergarten readiness, and much more. Child care will be available.
A Kindergarten Open House will be held at your school on Thursday, March 3, 2022, from 4-6 pm. This will be an opportunity to see your school before the fall of 2022, meet with teachers, learn about after-school opportunities, school lunch options, and much more. Please contact your school directly to find out what time your child is scheduled to attend.
