So kindergarten registration "began" today at 7 am and is open for the next week.
I went into the school last week to ask some questions about it, but, I got some answers I wasn't expecting! The school that my kids attend is our "home school", so doesn't that mean that we should get priority over open enrolled students? Apparently not, because I was told is was a 1st come 1st serve type of deal and that it gets pretty crazy on opening day. Here's why....... there is 1 a.m class, 1 p.m class and 1 full day class (which you have to pay $300/month for). There are 25 slots for each class equalling 75 slots and if you end up being #26 in any of those classes, you get put on a waiting list!!! WTH is up with that?
So, I dragged ( or is it drug ?) myself out of bed at 6:30 this morning to be at the school at 6:45. Guess how many people were already in line? I got registration packet #22!!!! So here's hoping that we get in without a problem.
But here's my next question.......What if your kid doesn't get in? Do they just have to skip Kindergarten? Isn't kindergarten required? I don't know, but the whole process sounds REALLY stupid to me. I don't remember it being so complicated when Shay started kindergarten.
