Children must be five years of age by September 15, 2019, to be eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall.  Parents/guardians who have a child ready to enter kindergarten may register their child for Roundup using the online form located at www.fdschools.org or may call the registrar at the Central Administration Building at 574.5679 to register their child into a Roundup session.  The following information is needed:

  • If your child currently attends preschool or TK at Riverside ELC: no paperwork is needed at this time, please use the online form to indicate your intention to enroll in kindergarten at the FDCSD
  • If your child currently attends preschool at Childcare Discovery, Community Christian, Dodger Preschool, Little Lambs or Saint Edmond: proof of guardianship, proof of address, immunization records and an Infinite Campus Parent Portal agreement (unless you already have a child in the district), please use the online form to indicate your intention to enroll in kindergarten at the FDCSD
  • If your child currently does not attend preschool: proof of guardianship, proof of address, immunization records and an Infinite Campus Parent Portal agreement (unless you already have a child in the district), please use the online form to indicate your intention to enroll in kindergarten at the FDCSD.

Parents and children will spend about an hour in a classroom where they will engage in various literacy, fine motor and math activities.  Parents will then attend a brief meeting with the building principal, nurse and kindergarten teachers.  Children will remain in the classroom during the meetings to participate in art and story time as well as have a snack.
