School Enrollment

Kindergarten Roundup

Each May, we conduct a Roundup for the next year's kindergarten students. These dates are on our school website calendar. Students must be 5 years old on or before September 1st of the next school year to attend kindergarten.  Students are eligible for transitional kindergarten if they have their fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2.   

School Permits

Inter-district permits to attend Hickory School if you do not live within the city of Torrance must be renewed annually.

Permits can be denied if there is a lack of progress by students, chronic absenteeism, tardies, and/or behavioral problems exist.

Open enrollment/intra-district permits are for students who live in Torrance but not in the Hickory attendance area. Once this type of permit is granted, Hickory becomes the home school and nothing else needs to be done year after year.

Additional information can be found at the TUSD website.
