Kindergarten Roundup registration season begins March 28

Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) begins the popular Kindergarten (K) and Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Roundup event for registration at local elementary schools on Tuesday, March 28. The Kindergarten Roundup event, which is held in each of the four school communities, is a great way for parents and guardians to complete enrollment for K and TK aged children in one place.

The Roundup events will be held in the afternoon in each community, a change from previous years’ morning time slots, to be more accessible for families to attend.

 

Kindergarten Roundup Schedule

Chester Elementary: Tuesday, March 28, 3:30 pm to 5 pm

Greenville Elementary: Thursday, March 30,  3:30 pm to 5 pm

Quincy Elementary- Pioneer Campus: Tuesday, April 4, 3:30 pm to 5 pm

C. Roy Carmichael Elementary: Thursday, April 6,3:30 pm to 5 pm

“Hearing, vision, and dental assessments are required to register for K and TK, along with a general physical, so the Roundup brings healthcare professionals to each community to provide these services free of charge,” says PUSD Lead School Nurse Emilee Pruitt. Parents will be able to have their children receive the health assessments as well as complete their registration for the 2023-24 school year. First 5, also known as the Plumas County Children and Families Commission, and Plumas County Public Health collaborate to provide supplies and items to participating families, such as school supplies, storybooks, and bike helmets.

A child must be age 5 on or before September 1, 2023 to enter Kindergarten. A child must be age 5 on or between September 2, 2023 and March 31, 2024 to enter Transitional Kindergarten (as available).

Parents and guardians should begin the enrollment process online before attending the Kindergarten Roundup. Online registration is available now on the PUSD website, www.pcoe.k12.ca.us, by clicking on the “Enrollment” button on the front page or by following this link: www.pcoe.k12.ca.us/apps/pages/Enrollment

Bring the following documents to the Roundup: a copy of the child’s birth certificate, proof of residence within school district boundaries, and immunization records. Children must have up-to-date immunizations to be enrolled. Families can download their child’s immunization record securely here: myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov/

The event allows children and parents to visit the school and meet with Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten teachers, and feel more comfortable when they start school.

Parents and guardians can bring their prospective Transitional Kindergartners and Kindergartners to get all the required hearing, vision, and dental assessments done in one place at the Kindergarten Roundup, free of charge. Photo submitted
