2017 Kindergarten Screening
We will be continuing the screening process for ALL incoming kindergarten students in the El Paso-Gridley School District for the fall of 2017. If your child will be eligible for kindergarten in the fall of 2017, they must first go through the screening process before they are allowed to register.
- You will be allowed to sign-up for the screening time at the Kindergarten Preview Night on February 2 at 6:00 at the Jefferson Park Gym for El Paso and Gridley students.
- You MUST have an appointment to have your child screened and ALL students have to go through the screening process before they can register and enter kindergarten.
- There will be two screening dates: Thursday, March 2 from 4:00p.m.-7:00 p.m. and Friday, March 3 from 8:00a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at Jefferson Park School. This screening is for El Paso and Gridley students.
You may also call Jefferson Park at 527-4405 or Gridley Grade School at 747-2360 to schedule an appointment AFTER the preview date. The following information is needed when you call: child’s legal name, parent’s name, and child’s date of birth, address and phone number.
The screening process is very important for the benefit of the students and parents, as well as the staff. By doing the screenings in the spring, parents will have a better understanding as to what their child’s strengths are as well as areas in which the child may need some help. This also gives our staff some much needed information as to what areas will need to be concentrated on with the students during their most important first year of school. We also need to have every student come through screening as it helps the district in planning the necessary space and staff needs for the upcoming school year. In this way, any additional staff that may need to be hired can be done early enough to ensure higher quality teachers.
Registration for kindergarten and all students will be held in August. Dates have not been set yet. All incoming kindergarten students must have their birth certificate, up-to-date shot and physical records and been through the screening process.
