WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

Kindergarten registration for the 2014-15 school year is now underway at most Downey elementary schools.

To be eligible for kindergarten, children must be at least 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014. Kids who turn 5 between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2 are also eligible for transitional kindergarten, a two-year kindergarten program at Alameda, Gallatin, Lewis, Price, Rio San Gabriel, Unsworth, Ward and Williams elementary schools.

Prior to registration, children must have received a physical examination after March 1, 2014, be up to date on vaccinations and have proof of an oral health assessment. The oral examination must be completed after Sept. 1, 2013.

Registration begins May 9 at Williams Elementary, May 16 at Ward Elementary and May 22 at Gallatin Elementary. All other public Downey elementary schools are already accepting kindergarten sign-ups.

For more information, call (562) 469-6500 and ask for your local school. If you do not know which school your child will attend, call (562) 469-6553.
