  •   Continuing Student Registration April 1-April 30, 2020.

    Parents and Guardians will receive email notification once the website is open. We must receive a completed digital packet for all returning students. This will allow for proper placement of your student for the 2020-2021 school year. This annual digital process will allow a family to complete one single “family” packet instead of completing one packet per student. Packets can be completed using any computer, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection. If you do not have access to any computing device or internet connection, your student’s school will provide access to complete the packet. READ MORE...

  •   2020-2021 TKP Interest LIst Process

    For clarity and consistency, below are the updated steps for parents/guardians to take if their child is born between June 1st and September 1st and they would like their child to attend TK rather than Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year. This new process is on the PUSD website as well.

    • Enroll your student in kindergarten at your school of residence during the first week of May.
    • Once enrolled and your student’s birthdate is verified, the school will give you instructions on how to place your student’s name on the TK Interest List later in May. (A&D will supply sites with a special form that includes a newly created link to the TKP Interest List and directions for the parents/guardians.)
    • Students will be placed on a first-come-first-serve basis. As always, due to increased numbers of students required to enroll in TK because of their age, space is limited. Students will be seated on a space-available basis according to the TK Interest List and possibly not at their home school.
    • Interest List placement is NOT a guarantee that a child will get a TK seat.
    • The TK Interest List is open only to students who live in the PUSD boundaries.
    • The student is returned automatically to his/her school of residence at the beginning of the following school year for Kindergarten.
    • If you have questions about the TK Interest List, please email  (A&D will be monitoring and answering these questions.)
