Everyone knows that one of the most important considerations when deciding where to buy a home is the quality of the local schools. If your child is entering kindergarten in the Fall of 2012, registration begins on February 1st. Kindergarten students must be 5 years old by November 2nd of the school year they are entering. You MUST pick up your registration packet in person at the school office, and you MUST have the following with you:

Proof of Birth Date

You must bring one of the following documents: birth certificate, baptismal certificate or passport.

Proof of Residence

You MUST bring a current PG&E bill plus one of the following:

- Bank statement

- Other utility bill - your water or Comcast bill would be perfect.

- Insurance papers

Do NOT bring a telephone bill, escrow papers, a rental agreement or a lease, as these documents are not considered acceptable proof of residence.
