Kindergarten Registration

Welcome Class of 2036!

On March 2, all District elementary schools hold Kindergarten Preview Event. At this special event, you and your child will meet the school’s administrators, the kindergarten teachers, other school personnel, and representatives of parent organizations. The Sioux Falls School District is committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for your child to begin their educational journey.

Students are eligible to attend Kindergarten, according to South Dakota Codified Law, if they are 5 years old on or before September 1st of the current school year. If your child meets these criteria, we would welcome them to one of our 23 elementary buildings.
