Children who have attended Four Year Old Pre-School for the entire year will be given priority to Kindergarten. Registration forms are processed in the order they are received in the office.
Any vacant positions will then be filled from the waiting list. Children who did attend Three Year Old Pre-School and Four Year Old Pre-School are guaranteed a position in First Grade. New students will be accepted in Kindergarten after school begins if they can successfully complete the work.
All children in the Kindergarten program that attended Three Year Old Pre-School and Four Year Old Pre-School for the entire year at Hillander are given priority for registration in First Grade. Children who have attended Four Year Old Pre-School for the entire year at Hillander and have siblings currently enrolled will be given second priority for registration in First Grade. Third priority will be given to children who have attended Four Year Old Pre-School for the entire year at Hillander but have no siblings. After this registration is complete, any remaining vacancies will be offered to the remaining Kindergarten children that have attended Hillander for the entire year and have other siblings currently enrolled in Hillander. If there are any remaining vacancies after this process is complete, then the remaining children in Kindergarten are offered the vacancies according to the order they contacted the school for placement in Kindergarten. Each August a new waiting list begins. If a student did not make it into a class at Hillander the previous year, the parents MUST fill out a new waiting list application.
