Dear Ross Valley Parents,
The YES Foundation provides much needed funding for many aspects of our district’s high-quality education, from art and music to technology and libraries. Both YES and the children it serves need strong and experienced volunteers to guide its growth and development.
Today, I am forwarding a letter from the Foundation’s co-chairs asking all of our parent community to consider becoming part of the YES board. I hope you will join me in supporting the rewarding and important work that YES does in partnership with this district.
Welcome to Ross Valley! We are preparing for student registration for students who will be new to the District in the 2014-15 school year. Please find below information regarding Kindergarten Orientation, Transitional Kindergarten and New Student Registration for the 2014-15 school year. If you have a child currently attending in a Ross Valley School District school, there is no need to re-register. The following information pertains only to students who are not currently attending a school in the District.
As you may know, State law requires that for the 2014-15 school year, a child must have his/her 5th birthday on or before September 1, 2014.
Kindergarten Orientation will be held at each elementary school site. The Orientation is an informational evening designed for parents/guardians (no children, please) to learn about the Kindergarten program and receive general information about the school site. Registration packets are available at each Orientation dates are as follows:
|Brookside||Wednesday, January 15, 2014||6:30-8:00 p.m.|
|Hidden Valley||Tuesday, January 14, 2014||6:30-8:00 p.m.|
|Manor||Thursday, January 9, 2014||6:30-8:00 p.m.|
|Wade Thomas||Wednesday, January 22, 2014||6:30-8:00 p.m.|
|Multi-Age Program (MAP) at Manor||Thursday, January 23, 2014||6:30-8:00 p.m.|
Kindergarten Registration packets will be available at Orientation. If you are unable to attend the Orientation, you can pick up a registration packet at your School of Residence after Orientation.
For the 2014-15 school year, a child must have his/her 5th birthday between September 2 and December 2, 2014 to be eligible to attend TK.
Beginning January 13, 2014, Transitional Kindergarten Registration packets will be available at your child's school of residence. The Transitional Kindergarten program is still under development for the 2014-15 school year as the eligibility of students will include 3 months of students (those who turn 5 between September 2 and December 2, 2014), and program implementation will depend on the number of students who enroll. Information on Transitional Kindergarten will be presented at Transitional Kindergarten Orientation events that will be scheduled in April or May 2014. Returning completed forms to your District School of Residence will give us a way to contact you as we determine dates for Orientation.
Beginning January 13, 2014, new student registration packets will be available for students who will be in grades 1-8 in the 2014-15 school year. This refers only to students who are not yet attending a Ross Valley school. Packets will be available at your child's school of residence.
On Monday, January 27, 2014, the Ross Valley School District will begin accepting registration forms for the 2014-15 school year for students entering Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten and new students in 1st through 8th grades. Registration packets are available at each school site. Additionally, registration information and forms are available below to print out.
To register for Transitional Kindergarten for the 2014-15 school year, a child must have his/her 5th birthday between September 2 and December 2, 2014.

Over the past few years, the Ross Valley School District has experienced increased enrollment, and, as such, our class sizes and facilities are impacted. As we plan for the 2014-15 school year, please note that we do not anticipate having space at any of our schools for students who do not reside within our District attendance boundaries. For information related to attendance of students who do not reside within the District's or a District school's attendance boundaries, please see below.
Please note that decisions about Intradistrict Attendance may not be made until after the 10th day of the new school year.
To obtain a Request for Interdistrict Transfer Permit form, please contact the district office in your district of residence.
