For Students starting Kindergarten in September, 2016
Any child who will become five years of age on or before December 1, 2016 is eligible for registration. In addition, New York Compulsory Education Law 3205 states that children who will turn six on or before December 1, 2015 are required to attend school during the 2016–2017 school year.
The necessary forms to facilitate this part of the registration process are below, please complete them and bring them with you when you meet with Sue Vanderwall (Registrar) to register your child (please note: there is a section that your child needs to complete). We also ask that you bring a copy of your child’s current immunization record (even though we realize your child may not be completely immunized yet), the school nurse would like to review your child’s status at registration time. The other items we request that you bring with you are: proof of your child’s age and proof of residency (please see attached types of acceptable evidence). Please call Sue at 585-289-3964 x3308 when you have everything completed to set up a time to meet.
In addition, when you come in to register your child, you will be asked to sign up to bring your child in for Kindergarten Screening, which will be held Monday, May 23, 2016 and Tuesday, May 24, 2016 in the elementary building. If you have any questions regarding the screening procedure, please feel free to contact the school.
If you do not intend to enter your child in September, please contact the Elementary School at your earliest convenience. The number is (585) 289-9647.
