Getting ready to attend school for the first time can be both an exciting and uncertain experience for the child and guardian. Use this page as a guide through the process & don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

The forms & questionnaires below need to be completed and brought with you to orientation in August.

They include immunization records and a health assessment so it's a good idea to get started on those early!

July

  • Complete district enrollment

    • If you completed the pre-enrollment by April 30th you'll be set for district-wide enrollment at the end of July!

    • You'll receive an email from Circle Public Schools at the end of July notifying you when enrollment is open for all district students

August

  • Attend orientation

  • Start Kindergarten!

"OH NO!"

"'We missed pre-enrollment! What do we do now?"

No worries! You will enroll as a new student at your base school and can do this any time from May 1st to May 31st.

School offices are closed from June 1st to July 30th and will be available again on August 1st.
