If your child was born after this date, please wait until the 2017-18 school year to apply for Kindergarten at Folsom Hills. If your child was born between September 2, 2011 through December 31, 2011 and you live within the boundaries of Folsom Hills, you may consider looking into our Transitional Kindergarten.
