Kindergarten signup, tours at Las Lomitas

Kindergarten registration for the 2013-14 school year for children in the Las Lomitas School District begins in January, and the district is beginning its tours for prospective parents next month.

Parents must reserve space on the tours, which are set for Dec. 6, 13, and 19; Jan. 18 and 24; Feb. 8 and 25; and March 7 and 20. All tours, which are for adults only, will be from 9:45 to 11 a.m. To reserve space, call 854-5900.

Registration packets for kindergartners who will begin classes at Las Lomitas School in Atherton will be available at the school office beginning Monday, Jan. 7. The completed forms will be accepted beginning Jan. 28 at 8 a.m., according to the district.

Children who will turn 5 on or before Oct. 1, 2013, are eligible.

There are two kindergarten sessions: 9 a.m. to 12:20 p.m., and 10:35 a.m. to 2:05 p.m. To synchronize with the bus schedule, children living in the Ladera area are placed in the first session, and children from the Woodside area attend the second session.

All other registration and session request forms will be date- and time-stamped for placement, according to the district.

Parents registering a child for kindergarten should bring the child's original birth certificate or passport, immunization records to date, and proof of residence in the form of two original utility bills, such as power and water, or one original utility bill and lease agreement or mortgage paperwork.

A tour for parents of children enrolling in first through third grades is set for 9:40 to 10:35 a.m. on March 21. The tour is for parents of students new to the school.

Parents of returning first- and second-graders who wish to request a change of session may email requests to beginning Jan. 1.
