Registration for the 2019-2020 school year for children who will be attending Kindergarten will be held Tuesday, February 5; Wednesday, February 6; and Thursday, February 7, 2019 from 9:00 - 11:00 AM and 1:00 - 3:00 PM each day at Apalachin Elementary School and Owego Elementary School. A registration form and health certificate can be obtained at the OA website under the Pupil Personnel department link: www.oacsd.org, at Apalachin Elementary School, 405 Pennsylvania Ave., Apalachin, or Owego Elementary School, 2 Sheldon Guile Blvd., Owego.
Children who will be five years old on or before 12/1/19 are eligible to enter Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year. All registered children will be screened in May or June in the areas of speech, language, vision, hearing, fine motor and gross motor skills. This screening is required by the New York State Department of Education and will help us identify any special needs your child might have.
Please complete the registration form and required documentation and return it to the building your child will attend. Parents who are unable to register their child on the dates designated above should contact the school principal at the number listed below and arrange a time that is convenient to both parties. In addition to the registration form, the following is required: copy of the child’s birth certificate, immunization record (polio, measles, diphtheria, mumps, rubella, varicella and hepatitis B), two forms of proof of residency, and the health certificate signed by your child’s physician.
Registration prior to the beginning of school is very important, as it enables the school to estimate time needed for school readiness screening, classes and transportation needs. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for school visitation before the opening session in the fall. If you have any questions regarding Kindergarten, please contact Robert Farrell, Assistant Superintendent at (607)687-6227.
