22/23 Kindergarten Age Requirement

January 3, 2022

Dear Parents and Legal Guardians,

The age requirements to start Kindergarten have changed as a result of the 2021 Legislative Session. Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, a child must be five (5) years of age on or before the first day of the school year (August 8, 2022) in order to be admitted into Kindergarten.

At this time, the Nevada Department of Education has guided us to make one exception. For the 2022-2023 school year only, any four-year-old who has attended one year of pre-Kindergarten and is ready to advance to Kindergarten will be allowed to do so.

If you plan to enroll your child into Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year and your child is not currently attending pre-Kindergarten, your child must meet the new age requirement described above in order to be admitted.

Online registration (OLR) for the 2022-2023 school year will be open on March 14, 2022. Parents/Legal Guardians with students currently attending a Nye County School District school will access their OLR application through the parent portal. Parents/Legal Guardians with students new to Nye County School District will register directly through the OLR link. Directions on accessing OLR can be found on the Nye County School District website (www.nye.k12.nv.us) by clicking on Menu > Parents/Guardians > Registration and Enrollment.

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s zoned school.


Mrs. Laura Weir

Director of Elementary Education
