Kindergarten Registration

 Kindergarten registration for the Payson/Santaquin/Goshen Area Elementary Schools will be from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M on Tuesday, March 20th, 2018.  Please go to your respective elementary school on that day if you have a child who will be starting kindergarten in the 2018-2019 school year. Bring your child with you as there will be a short assessment given. Requirements to start kindergarten are outlined below.  Please keep in mind that these are state laws not subject to change by the school.

 *Special instructions for students involved in the new school boundaries in Santaquin.

This will be considered a Pre-registration for the Santaquin area schools. You will need to register at your current school in March and then if involved, your new school in the fall.

 Children must be five years of age on or before September 1, 2018 to start kindergarten.
