who will be five years old on or before 12/1/18 are eligible to enter
Kindergarten for the 2018-2019 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.
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.
