Kindergarten During COVID-19
Minnetonka Schools has safety measures in place to keep students safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, while continuing to ensure an outstanding educational experience.
- Kindergarten students should be five years old by September 1. Parents may request early entrance consideration for children turning five by October 31.
