You will also need to bring the following with you: 1) Your child's birth certificate or a court order that shows you have legal custody of the child. Your child must be 5 years old before or on August 31st of the year in which you wish to enroll him/her. 2) Your child's up-to-date immunization records.

At Southwest, we choose to collect the paperwork at any time. However, we do set a Kindergarten Registration day like the other schools in our zone. Our Kindergarten registration day will be in March (TBA) from 9am to 11am. This is just a paperwork collection/drop-off day. The rising Kindergartener does not need to come with you.
