Kindergarten registration for 2017-2018 began Monday, January 9, 2017 and will continue until the start of school. The school office is open 9AM-12PM and 1PM-3PM for in-person registration and online application verification. Please bring the required documents as well as your photo ID. The school cannot officially register you until they've verified all your documentation. Children must be 5 years old by September 1, 2017, to be enrolled.

Whether you register online from home or in-person at Fairmont, the most important thing to do is to prepare your documentation. Complete verification requirements are available at the District's Enrollment Verification page. Briefly these are:

  • Age Verification
  • Residency Verification (2 documents, in parent's/guardian's name - District Residency Map)
  • Immunization record (per California SB 277)
  • Valid indentification

NOTE: Even if you complete your application online, you must present your documentation in-person at Fairmont. Call 510.231.1448 to make an appointment.
