Las Lomitas offers transitional kindergarten

For the first time, the Las Lomitas School District is offering a transitional kindergarten program called "Young Fives," under the Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010.

Children who turn 5 between Nov. 1 and Dec. 2, 2012, are eligible for the Young Fives program. The following year, they will enter the regular kindergarten program.

Children who turn 5 before Nov. 1, 2012, are eligible for the regular kindergarten program.

Registration packets for the 2012-13 school year for all grades -- including Young Fives and regular kindergarten -- will be available at the Las Lomitas School office beginning Jan. 9, 2012. Completed packets will be accepted no sooner than 8 a.m. on Jan. 30, 2012.

To register a child for Young Fives or regular kindergarten, bring the original birth certificate or passport, proof of residence (original phone bill and PG&E bill), and child's immunization record.

There are two sessions of kindergarten: 9 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. and 10:35 a.m. to 2:05 p.m. Due to the bus schedule, kindergartners living in the Ladera area are placed in the first session, and kindergartners in the Woodside area are placed in the second session.

Tours of the school for parents of incoming new Young Fives and kindergarten students are scheduled for 2012. Tours are for adults only. Call the school office at 854-5900 to reserve a place.
