Lakewood plans kindergarten registration

LAKEWOOD — Kindergarten registration for the Lakewood School District will run a bit differently this year, due in part to popular request.

Priscilla Brady, director of human resources and learning support services for the Lakewood School District, explained that the centennial celebration at this year’s tech expo and open house displaced the kindergarten registration that’s typically conducted at that time, but reassured families that the district would still be conducting a “roundup” to kick off kindergarten registration from March 25-27.

“Without a kickoff date, we don’t really see that volume of registrations, which tend to trickle in instead,” said Brady, who noted that this year’s kindergarten registration roundup will be conducted at the individual elementary schools, rather than at Lakewood High School. “That way, the individual schools’ staff members will be there to answer families’ questions.”

The roundup will run from 3:30-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, and from 1-3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26, and Thursday, March 27.

“If you don’t know your boundary school, call the school district office at 360-652-4500 to find out,” said Brady, who added that staff members would do their best to direct families to their boundary schools during the roundup itself. “And to make the process run more smoothly, we’re requesting that you have your children’s birth certificates, immunization records and proof of address in hand when you show up, so that we don’t have to call you back.”

Following the roundup, kindergarten registration will continue during regular school hours at each school. For more information, call 360-652-4500 or log onto www.lwsd.wednet.edu.
