Kindergarten and new student registration opens for 2021-22 school year

kinder The official window for kindergarten registration for the 2021-22 school year is open between Monday, April 12, and Friday, April 23. Families with children who will be five years old by September 1 are eligible to enter kindergarten at a school within Hood River County School District (HRCSD). 

Students at any grade level who need to enroll or re-enroll in a neighborhood school within HRCSD should also follow this registration window. 

To enroll in school, families need to contact their neighborhood school office to complete the necessary paperwork. Geographical boundaries determine the attendance areas for each school within HRCSD. 

Following the guidance of the Oregon Department of Education (ODE), HRCSD recommends enrolling students in grades according to their age. In April and May, the school district will be sharing information regarding 2021 summer programs to help address academic needs for all its students. 

HRCSD intends to offer in-person instruction Monday through Friday for a full day in the 2021-22 school year. The school district will continue to follow the guidance provided by ODE.
