  • Kindergarten Registration


    • We encourage families to please register as soon as possible. We anticipate high enrollment for our incoming kinder families. Kinder placement at Chief Charlo is based on capacity and we cannot guarantee enrollment over specific class sizes. The sooner you get your kiddo enrolled the better chances of remaining at your area school.
    • We will have a fall “Kindergarten Round-Up”. Due to COVID-19 we were unable to run our normal round-up day for families. We are aiming for a day in mid-August. We will have more information to share with Kindergarten families in the coming weeks.
    • You can pick up Kindergarten enrollment forms at our school from 10am-1pm by requesting one from staff in the lunch distribution station.  You can return the completed enrollment with necessary information in the "Student Work Drop Box" at the front door. 
    • For addtional information visit the Kindergarten Registration webpage.
