Kindergarten Enrollment for 2018-19


If your student attended Transitional Kindergarten in the 2017-2018 school year at one of our schools, please do not complete these steps. Your child is considered a returning student and will be registered for the new school year during the summer through the Parent Portal.

Children must be 5 on or before September 1, 2018 to be eligible to register for kindergarten.

Children who turn 5 between September 2, 2018 and December 2, 2018 are eligible to register for transitional kindergarten.

Children who turn 5 between December 3, 2018 and January 31, 2019 may be placed on a waiting list for admission to transitional kindergarten if space allows.

Please visit the Transitional Kindergarten page on this web site for more information about this program.


Enrollment Information

Enrollment for any student who will be new to the Savanna School District will need to be completed online. Please visit the school boundaries link on this website to determine your child's school of residence (home school) prior to beginning the steps below. 



Step One: Complete the online pre-enrollment form

Step Two: Office staff from your child’s home school will contact you to set up an office visit. 

At this office visit, you will need to bring the following information (originals):

a) Proof of birth date: Proof must be provided before the child may be admitted. One of the following documents is acceptable: original birth certificate, recorder sworn transcript, baptismal certificate, physician statement of birth, passport showing age or other valid proof of birth.

b) Proof of Residence: One of the following documents, current and dated within the last 30 days is acceptable:

* Property Tax Payment Receipt
* Rental property contract, lease, or payment receipt
* Utility service (electric, gas, water) contract, statement, or payment receipts
* Voter Registration
* Pay Stub
* Correspondence from a government agency
* Notarized declaration of residency executed by the parent or legal guardian of a student

c) Immunization Records: Records must be originals, stamped by the doctor's office. The school will make a copy to keep on file, with originals returned to the parent. Parents must present proof that the following immunizations have been completed.

d) Physical Exam: All children need a health check-up before enrollment in kindergarten. California law requires children have a physical exam (health check-up) by first grade. Savanna School District requires the physical exam be completed before Kindergarten entry and will be one of the items requested as part of the enrollment process. The physical exam may be free to those who qualify through the CHDP (Child Health and Disability Prevention) program. For information call 1-800-564-8448. Parents or guardians who do not wish to obtain a physical examination for their child must come to the school office to sign a waiver. Click here to download a copy of the form

e) Dental Exam Requirement for Kindergarten Students
California law (Education Code Section 49452.8) requires that students entering the first year of public school have a dental check-up. Any dental examination completed up to 12 months before the start of kindergarten will also meet this requirement. The Oral Health Assessment form should be turned into the school as soon as possible.
