Update your child’s immunizations
State law requires written proof that kindergartners have been immunized against: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTP); measles, mumps and rubella (MMR); polio; varicella (chicken pox); and hepatitis B. If you have questions about these immunizations or the free immunization clinic, please call our enrollment advisors at 763-585-7350.
Watch for your child’s half-day kindergarten assignment and transportation information
Transportation is provided to kindergarten students who live one-half mile or more from school; your child’s specific busing information will be mailed in late August 2013.
