School District Opens Registration for 2018-19 Academic Year


Kindergarten and new student registration, along with re-registration for existing students, is now open for the Washoe County School District’s 2018-19 school year.

Children must be age five on or before Sept. 30, 2018 to enter kindergarten. Those entering as first graders or second graders must be six or seven by that date, respectively.

Parents or guardians can complete registration forms in English or Spanish online at Once finished, they are to visit their child’s zoned school and produce a current utility bill showing their address, along with the child’s immunization records and an original birth certificate.

Those without access to a computer can visit any school for assistance.

Students who are already enrolled in the district must be re-registered annually via the Infinite Campus portal. Parents are asked to review and update their children’s medical particulars, emergency contact information and other pertinent details.

Classes for students in first through 12th grades begin Aug. 6 at most schools. Screenings and meet-and-greet sessions for kindergarteners and their teachers are scheduled Aug. 6-10, with their first day being Aug. 13.

During kindergarten screenings, teachers evaluate children’s abilities to identify letters and numbers, assess their fine and gross motor skills, and get to know the child.
