Required Documents

Before a student can begin school, school staff must verify:

  • A student's proof of age from a birth certificate (preferred), hospital records, signed affidavit by the parent/guardian, or other approved & appropriate documentation.
  • That a student has had at least one dose of each required vaccination. (See the 2020-2021 Oregon Required Immunizations to see what your child may need). Or, that the student is exempt from required vaccines as per a medical or nonmedical vaccine exemption document.
  • Proof of residency document

Soft Start for Kindergarten Students

For the 2023-2024 school year, the first day of school for all 1st - 5th-grade students will be Tuesday, September 5. However, Kindergarten students will only attend one day this first week for a 45-minute evaluation. (You will sign your child up for their time slot during May pre-registration.)   While at school on one of these days, our staff will be going over expectations and routines. Teachers will also be assessing students' skills and knowledge in literacy & math, as well as motor and expressive skills. Daily Kindergarten first day of school will be September 11, 2023.
