Children must be 5 years old by September 1 of the calendar year for which they are registering to enter kindergarten.In the West Linn-Wilsonvile School District, our Kindergarten day, like the rest of our grade level days, is a full school day of learning. A full-day of learning in our schools means your child can delve deeply into Literacy, Mathematics, and Science/Social Studies learning every day with ample time for new learning and practice. A full-day Kindergarten means your child will have two sessions of Music and PE/Wellness every week and lots of opportunities throughout the week to visit the school library to read, research, and take books home to enjoy together. Our full-day Kindergarten Program also provides access for children to assemblies, field trips, and special events during the school day and school year.IF YOU ARE ENROLLING IN THE WEST LINN-WILSONVILLE SCHOOL DISTRICT, PLEASE SIGN UP TO RECEIVE ALL SCHOOL AND DISTRICT NOTIFICATIONS. We recommend signing up for your school's ListServ (i.e. BOLPS-Homes for Bolton Primary Updates) as well as WLWV-Homes for district-level updates. This is particularly important this year as we implement plans to reopen schools.
