Full-Day Kindergarten Available

All three elementary schools in the Shelton School District will offer full-day kindergarten beginning in September 2013. This is possible because the state has increased the percentage of schools eligible for funding. Bordeaux and Mt. View Elementary Schools now can provide an all-day program like Evergreen Elementary, which has had this program for a number of years.

To register a child for kindergarten in Washington State, a birth certificate showing the child will be 5 years old by August 31st and a record of up-to-date immunizations are requirements. Elementary schools are closed for the summer, but registration packets are available at the Shelton School District Central Office located at 700 S. 1st St. Call 426-1687 for more information. School begins on September 4th. Please register soon. This is a wonderful opportunity for our community and students will benefit greatly by attending school all day
