Preschool registration for 3 and 4 year olds begins on Monday, April 9th in the school office.
Registration packets will not be available in advance. Packets can be picked up in the Multi-Purpose Room beginning at 7:30. Once you pick up your packet, you will be able to complete your paperwork at one of the tables nearby. Your packet may only be turned it when it is complete; the emergency card and other forms must be completely filled out and a copy of the birth certificate and immunization records must be included. Only complete packets will be accepted and placed on the list.
Students in the three year old class need to be 3 by September 1st; students in the 4 year old class need to be 4 by September 1st. All students need to be potty-trained before school starts.
We accept 18 students in the 3 year old class and 20 in the 4 year old class. Beyond that number, we will place students on a waiting list.
We are very happy that our preschool program is so popular! If you are planning on enrolling your child, we encourage you to come on the 9th!
Kindergarten TK Round Up is tomorrow, March 20th! Please come to the MPR at 6:30 to hear a short presentation, pick up your registration packet, and sign up for an assessment time (on Wednesday).
Yee Haw! It's time for Kindergarten Round Up!
Who should come? Parents (not kids) of children entering TK or Kindergarten in August.
How do I know what to enroll for? If your child turns 5 by September 1, 2018, he/she will enroll in Kindergarten. If your child turns 5 AFTER September 1 but before December 1, he/she will enroll in TK. If your child turns 5 AFTER December 1st, he/she will enroll in preschool in April.
Why should I come? You will get all the information you need to enroll your child that night, including a registration packet. You will also sign up for your child's assessment time, which will be the following day. You will have a chance to ask any questions you may have about our school/programs.
The Kindergarten and TK teachers will be there, and so will members of the Cottage Hill Parent Teacher Club (PTC).
If you have friends or neighbors who are not registered on our school web site, please pass this information along!

Snow Day? Snow days are usually called when there is ice on the road in Alta Sierra and the buses can't make their routes safely. If buses can't travel in Alta Sierra, PRSD calls a snow day for the whole district (even if roads are clear surrounding Cottage Hill). If we have a snow day, you will receive a phone call from the district office in the morning. If you have your email listed in power school, you will also receive an email. Snow Days are also posted on the school/district websites.
There are times that NU cancels school due to ice in Grass Valley and Bear River has to close, even though PRSD is remaining open. Please check your voice mail and/or the school websites to determine if PRSD is declaring a snow day. Thank you!
