Kindergarten Registration for 17-18 Opens in November
The start of the 2016-17 school year was also the start of the full-day kindergarten program at Orland School District 135. For the first time in the District’s history, kindergarten students had the opportunity to attend school for a full day rather than just 2.5 hours. The addition of the full-day program brought an increase in the population of kindergarteners for this school year.
Kindergarten registration for the 2017-2018 school year will open in November. On Tuesday, November 15th and Tuesday, November 29th, the District’s registration department, located at 15100 S. 94th Avenue, will be open from 4-7pm. Students who will be five years old by September 1, 2017 may register for the 2017-2018 school year. The registration fee for kindergarten will be $170.
Nearly all of this year’s 489 kindergarten students currently attend full day - only six attend for a half-day. The extended day allows for hands-on learning experiences that enhance the curriculum. In a full-day program, students not only attain higher academic achievement, but it also allows them to develop social and emotional skills.
