Highlands Families,

This year the registration period for Preschool and Kindergarten will look differently. 
We have confirmation that the kindergarten registration window for the 2023-24 school year will be open on December 1st, 2022.  All preschool students who will be moving to kindergarten MUST fill out new registration forms.  We recommend families to register right away.  If you are not in our attendance area, you will need to fill out the registration form AND the open enrollment form.  The open enrollment form is for families who are outside of the Highlands attendance boundary.  Here is a link that will help you see where your home school is located.  SVVSD Maps & Boundaries

Currently, we do not have any updates for the 2023-24 Preschool registration.  They are still looking at a January registration window.
