CASPER, Wyo. — The Natrona County School District offers Dual Language Immersion programs at three elementary schools.

In-coming kindergarteners at Verda James and Park Elementary have the opportunity to receive instruction in Spanish as they progress through the grade levels at those schools.

Paradise Valley Elementary School offers a similar program but in Mandarin Chinese.

Parents and guardians interested in having their children enroll in one of these programs when they start kindergarten in 2020 can learn about the programs at several up-coming meeting opportunities.

The school district says that parent or guardians must attend one of the meetings in order for their children to have the opportunity to enroll in the DLI programs.

Parents and guardians will still need to use NCSD’s online enrollment tool to enroll their children in kindergarten.
