Hawks View & Ridges Elementary Schools Pre-Kindergarten Programs

The Sherwood School District is excited to offer Pre-Kindergarten in the Fall of 2021. Our inclusive Pre-Kindergarten programs have the goal of offering high-quality early learning education that promotes social-emotional learning and academic skills students need to be successful in school and beyond.  Our new programs in the coming year will be inclusive, providing rich early learning opportunities for typically developing children and children with developmental delays and disabilities. This will be a tuition-based program, with financial assistance available for families who qualify.

We will be accepting applications starting April 16th, 2021. There are 20 spots available at each site. Please note: If there are slots available on June 11th [after the second wave of registration] students will be enrolled as they apply. Use the Pre-Kindergarten Application to hold your spot on the waitlist after June 11, 2021.

Steps to apply and timeline for the Pre-Kindergarten Program

  • Fill out the online Pre-Kindergarten Application or the paper Pre-Kindergarten Application in English or Spanish (Submit paperwork if applying for financial assistance). Applications are due by 4:00 PST on May 14, 2021. If all spots aren’t filled the second wave of applications are due by 4:00 PST on May 28, 2021.
  • The District will conduct a lottery on May 17th. Parents and families will be notified of their acceptance or waitlist status between May 17th and May 21st and June 4th for second wave applications. Notifications will be sent via email or regular mail.
  • If your child is accepted, you must enroll your student in the Sherwood School District and submit the first month of tuition (if applicable) to reserve your spot no later than June 1, 2021, to hold your slot.  Information on how to enroll and pay tuition will be provided to families that are accepted into the program.
