All Monterey County Schools have closed until March 31st. Our staff are all working this week to ensure our children have the tools and instruction needed during this time.

Our district office is also closed during this time, which means we will be unable to hold our in person kindergarten & TK registration appointments as planned. However, our Registrar is available to begin the registration process via email.

Paper Round-Up

We hold our annual “Paper Round-Up” each year in early August, just before the start of the school year. In exchange for returning the mandatory paperwork (available under “forms” below), you will receive your student’s homeroom placement for the upcoming year.  Also, you will be able to pay for food service/transportation, learn about our parent groups (Spreckels Union Educational Foundation, Bobcat Club, and Spreckels PTO), and purchase school-spirit merchandise. We look forward to seeing you there.

The following forms are required and need to be completed each school year:

The following forms are not required and should only be completed as applicable:

Interdistrict Enrollment

If you do not live within our district boundaries, you must contact your district of residency to initiate the transfer process.

  1. Contact your district of residency and apply for an interdistrict transfer. Only your home district can “release” your student to attend school in another district. Each district operates on a different time frame. Please contact your home district for full details.
  2. Bring us a copy of the application once it has been filed with your home district. Your student will not be placed on our waiting list until this has been received.
  3. Once released by your home district, please make an appointment or stop by our district office to obtain the following paperwork and ask any questions you may have:
    • Request for Interdistrict Transfer
    • Letter of Condition
    • Employment and/or Child Care form as appropriate.
  4. If your application is approved, you can begin the “in-district enrollment” procedure detailed above. Approvals are usually granted between March and May. The specific time frame will vary year to year depending on enrollment numbers and class configurations.

Relevant Policies

Please contact Eric Tarallo if you have any questions regarding the interdistrict transfer process.
