Families preparing to send their children off to school for the first time in the fall can visit elementary campuses in the Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) during Kindergarten Roundup meetings in the month of February.
All 36 elementary CUSD schools will hold informational meetings that will last about an hour to provide families with important information regarding kindergarten programs and distribute registration materials. A schedule of roundup dates and times is available online at capousd.ca.schoolloop.com.
Families should bring proof of residence to receive their registration packets. If families intend to apply for a school of choice during the Open Enrollment period, they may attend a roundup at their preferred site.
Children must be 5-years-old by October 1 to begin kindergarten. If they miss the cut-off date, they may be eligible for the District’s Transitional Kindergarten program.
