School district invites kindergarteners to early signups


Portland Public Schools will host kindergarten 'roundup' events this week at four schools that traditionally have late signups for the fall.

The roundups are a time for incoming kindergartners and their parents or guardians to learn about school programs, expectations and resources. Families can tour the buildings and meet other students. As they pre-register for the fall, the schools can start planning their staffing.

Children who'll start kindergarten this fall were born between Sept. 2, 2005, and Sept. 2, 2006.

The roundups are:

• Rigler K-8 School, 5401 N.E. Prescott St., Wednesday, June 1, 5:30 p.m., dinner provided

• Scott K-8 School, 6700 N.E. Prescott St.; Wednesday, June 1, 6 p.m.

• Vestal K-8 School, 161 N.E. 82nd Ave., Wednesday, June 1, 6 p.m., dinner provided

• Woodmere Elementary School, 7900 S.E. Duke St., Tuesday, June 7, 10:45 a.m.

Other schools will hold roundup events later this summer. School ends June 14 for most Portland public schools.
