How to send a mail to this school regarding this, can anybody guide, thanks
Hi Bennyclem, and welcome to the parent community at GreatSchools.
There are a few options. First private schools are not as picky about the date when it comes to cutoffs for age. If your daughter has already finished first grade, so they'd test her and she'd likely be placed in second grade.
If you are going to focus on public schools it will be a bit harder. State mandates typically require specific date cutoffs for kinder and first grade. That said, most do have some work-around for students coming from other states or countries who have successfully mastered the work.
Start by contacting the district here: http://www.d181.org/contact/index.aspx
Tell them your situation and ask how you can get your child placed in the appropriate grade.
