Universal PreK and Kindergarten Registration (Updated Info 5/20/20)
We have once again extended the deadline, and subsequently the lottery, for UPK registrations. Parents of students who quailfy to attend UPK in the Fall of 2020 (student must turn 4 years old on or before December 1, 2020) as well as Kindergarten Registration, can physically turn in completed registration packets at the Owego Elementary School Office during the following dates/times:
May 26th & 27th, June 2nd & 3rd, June 9th & 10th, June 16th & 17th from 9:00-11:00AM
Regardless of the elementary building your child will attend, all registration forms can be dropped off at OES during these times. Please remember you will be entering a public building, so all social distancing requirements will be in place. If you are able, you may also email registration forms and other required documentation to Jodi Lindhorst at [email protected] - to avoid contact as much as possible, please bring all of your paperwork completed, and copies of the necessary documentation for registration.
The deadline to register for UPK will now be 11:00AM on June 17th. The Lottery, if needed, will take place on Monday, June 22nd at 10:00am.
UPK and Kindergarten Screenings have been delayed for now. Parents will receive more information once those details are determined.
Children who will be five years old on or before 12/1/20 are eligible to enter Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year. All registered children will be screened at a time to be determined 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.
