2020-2021 Kindergarten Enrollment Process


Introduction
D205 Kindergarten Registration - D205 is fortunate to offer several options for kindergarten: traditional half-day; dual language; and a new all-day kindergarten program that is being phased in starting in the 2020-21 school year. To accommodate interest in all of our kindergarten programs, D205 held kindergarten registration in mid-October for the Dual Language and All Day Kindergarten lottery. ADK registration is now closed.  

However, families may still enroll their incoming kindergartener or new to first grade student at their home school.
