Note to current First Step Parents:
Parents who have children in the First Step Program DO NOT have to register their children for kindergarten; your child's school records are in our system and are transferred to the next zoned school in June. We suggest that you contact your zoned school  to make sure everything is in order for your child to start kindergarten.

Please note that WECC students do not wear uniforms.
