Kindergarten Registration: Join Our Nest!

A child is eligible for kindergarten if he/she attains the age of five on or before August 1, 2021.  Families can download registration forms by clicking here.  After completing the forms (or if you have any questions) please email or call the district kindergarten registrar (Amy Welker) at a.welker@svlocal.org or (330) 866-3339 to schedule a time to drop off the registration form and to arrange a screening appointment for your child.  Please note that screening appointments are only necessary for families that did not attend Little Cardinal or SCIP preschools.  Completed registration paperwork can also be mailed to:  Sandy Valley Local Schools, 5362 State Route 183, Magnolia, Ohio 44643.  Once received, the district kindergarten registrar (Amy Welker) will then call you to finalize all paperwork and schedule a screening appointment.

There will be three in-person registration dates (see below).  In-person registration will take place at the SVLS Administration Center (5362 State Route 183, Magnolia, Ohio 44643).  In-person appointments will be limited with all health protocols and guidelines in place on the following dates and times.  Screening for any child that did not attend Little Cardinals or SCIP preschool will take place during in-person registration.  Please call the district kindergarten registrar (Amy Welker) at (330) 866-9225 to schedule an appointment.
