Kindergarten Registration

2017-2018 Ballard Community Schools

Kindergarten Information

Our informational kindergarten parent meeting will take place on Monday, March 20, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Ballard West Elementary in Slater.  This meeting will be for parents/guardians only.

How do I officially register my child for Kindergarten?

Starting with the 2017-2018 school year, Ballard school registration will be mostly handled through an online registration system, along with some required forms/documents to be submitted.  By selecting the link here you will be redirected to the online registration application.  The main district page will also have directions to reach the online registration system.

Kindergarten Registration Checklist

Please follow the Kindergarten Registration Checklist to guide you through the registration process.  We also ask parents to fill out a  Kindergarten Student Information Form to be submitted to your student's classroom teacher.  Please submit any requested documents at the March 20th meeting.


Health Documents
The district requests a copy of the child's current immunization certificate. For children receiving immunizations after March 3rd, an up-to-date immunization certificate will need to be submitted to the school nurse by the first day of school.  



Please contact the Ballard West nurse with any questions or concerns.
