Kindergarten Registration Begins March 4
Kindergarten registration begins Wednesday, March 4. The district has seen record numbers of kindergarteners in recent years so parents are encouraged to register their child early, which should increase the odds of the child being able to attend their neighborhood school. Not sure what school you're zoned to attend? See D91 School Boundaries map.
Registration packets should be completed and returned to the school families are zoned to attend. Parents also should bring proof of residency, a copy of the child's official birth certificate and current immunization records. State law requires children to be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 to register for kindergarten. Questions? Send them to us.

Supplemental Levy Election
Patrons will go to the polls on March 10 to vote on renewal of the district's $6.8 million supplemental levy. The levy provides the district with critical funding to recruit and retain the highest quality teachers, and to ensure all students graduate with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to be successful after high school. The levy is not new and it will not impact taxes.
Polls will be open from 8 am to 8 pm, and voters will cast ballots where they vote in the general election. Find your polling place.
Being Successful On and Off The Court
Developing a winning mindset is key to success on and off the court, and a FREE workshop at 6:30 pm on March 12 will give student athletes and their parents some tips for developing that kind of mindset. The workshop is sponsored by Idaho Falls School District 91's Athletic Advisory Committee. Questions? Send them to us.
