It is time to plan for kindergarten!  We are excited to welcome incoming kindergarten students and their families for the 2021-2022 school year.  Idaho funds a half-day kindergarten program.

Pre-register now! Until June 22, parents have two options to pre-register their incoming kindergarten student.   

Option 1Online pre-registration form. (LINK)

Option 2:   Phone pre-registration (Beginning April 5, parents may call the child’s school to pre-register.  If you reach the answering machine, please leave a message including your phone number for office staff to return your call.)

It is important to pre-register your kindergarten student, so they are included in our preliminary enrollment numbers.

When can my child enroll in Kindergarten?  Children who will be 5-years old on or before September 1 of any new school year are eligible to enter Kindergarten in the Post Falls School District. Idaho Code 33-201 defines, "school age" as including all students that reside in the state of Idaho, between the ages of five (5) and twenty-one (21) years.  The age of five (5) years shall be attained when the fifth anniversary of birth occurs on or before the first day of September of the school year in which the child is to enroll in kindergarten.  For a child enrolling in the first grade, the age of six (6) years must be reached on or before the first day of September of the school year in which the child is to enroll. 


August 18th - Mark your calendars! 

On August 18th, incoming kindergarten families will visit their home schools to finalize the registration process.  At that time, schools will also conduct a kindergarten screening. More information about this event will be emailed to parents and posted to the district website in June.

For the August registration and screening, families will need to provide copies of the following information:

  • Certified birth certificate (ordering link)
  • Proof of residency (examples include a rental agreement or utility bill)
  • Current immunization records
