Kindergarten is an important first step in the Palmdale School District’s educational system.  We look forward to the opportunity of serving you and your child in our kindergarten program.  One of the ways you can help us in our planning for next year’s kindergarten program is to enroll as early as possible.  August 11, 2014 is the first day of school.  The busiest time of year to register students is two weeks before and after the start of school.  Register early where possible and avoid long waits during peak periods.
