Kindergarten registration down in Sooke School District

Numbers down slightly compared to 2017 but still early

Kindergarten registration is down slightly in the Sooke School District but officials noted it’s still early.

Registration for all grades in SD62 opened for the next school year on Monday.

As of 10 a.m. Monday, 533 youngsters had registered for kindergarten programs across the West Shore and in Sooke. In comparison, the district had about 600 students register by that time last year.

Unlike some of the other districts in the region, the Sooke School District allows parents to register online, which can mean there isn’t the same panic and lineups other districts can see.
