New Student Enrollment

To enroll your student in the Cypress School District, please visit your home school. For assistance in identifying your home school, enter your address in our school locator app.

Proof of residency is required. If you live outside the boundaries of the Cypress School District, please see Student Transfers for enrollment information.

Enrollment Priority

  1. Students living within the school’s boundary with a sibling currently enrolled in the school.

  2. Students living within the school’s boundary without a sibling currently enrolled in the school.

  3. District students requesting an intradistrict transfer between schools.* 
    (Priority given to students with a sibling already enrolled)

  4. Students requesting an interdistrict transfer into the district.*
    (Priority given to students with a sibling already enrolled)

    *Once enrolled, intradistrict and interdistrict transfer students are allowed to keep their seats as long as they maintain good attendance and appropriate school behavior.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten enrollment for the new school year begins in February.

Kindergarten Programs: Cypress School District offers both traditional and transitional kindergarten (TK) programs.

  • Traditional Kindergarten:  Children must be 5 years of age on or before
    September 1.

  • Transitional Kindergarten:  Open to children who will turn 5 years of age
    between September 2 and December 2.

    TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum in the first year that is age and developmentally appropriate. Program content is based upon the California Preschool Learning Foundations and the California state standards for kindergarten.

    TK is a districtwide program, and classes are centralized at various school sites within the district. As a result, your child may be assigned to attend TK at a school other than your home school. Age-eligible children who enroll in TK will complete regular kindergarten the following year, typically at their home school except in the instances of interdistrict, intradistrict, or administrative transfers.

Immunization Requirements:  California law requires your child to have received the following vaccinations prior to enrolling in traditional or transitional kindergarten:

Diphtheria, Pertussis, and Tetanus (DPT) Five (5) doses
Polio Four (4) doses
Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Two (2) doses
Hepatitis B Three (3) doses
Varicella (chickenpox) Two (2) doses


Under Senate Bill 277, which took effect on January 1, 2016, exemption from immunizations based on personal belief is no longer permissible.

For additional information regarding immunizations, please visit shotsforschool.org.

Our priority is always to ensure that students attend their home school or the school of choice elected by their parent(s). However, when a grade level is full at a school, we may need to administratively transfer a newly enrolled student to another school within the Cypress School District that has seats available to ensure optimal student learning..
