Registration & Immunizations

Whether you’re a new neighbor or just beginning your education, we’re happy to welcome new members to the Springfield Platteview Community Schools family. Please give us a call if you have any questions about our registration process.

What Is the Age Requirement to Enter Kindergarten?

Kindergarten registration is available for children who are five years of age on or before July 31 of the calendar year of the school year for which the child is seeking admission.
