Welcome to Kindergarten! The Juneau School District has an exciting kindergarten program planned for your child. Educators, early childhood experts, and parents are working together to insure that our program matches the needs of your five year old. This handbook will outline our program and answer most of your questions about starting school. Children must be five years old by September 1, 2013 to attend kindergarten. Please contact the principal or teacher at your child’s school to get specific help with your concerns. We believe that the home and school working together can be a positive force in your child’s life. Juneau School District Kindergarten Handbook.
