Kindergarten open registration in the Baldwinsville Central School District for the 2010--11 school year will take place at the elementary schools from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday March 24 and from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday March 25. Families currently on the district student database will receive an informational letter and registration packet in the mail by March 12. If you have a child who does not attend a local preschool, call the district registrar as soon as possible at 635-4569 to be added to the district's database.
Registration will take place at the elementary school of the student's current attendance area for his or her home address. The informational letter will provide details for parents regarding which school to register their children at, as well as the requirements needed to complete the registration process.
In order to be eligible for kindergarten in September, a child must be five years old on or before Dec. 1. The district is unable to honor requests to make exceptions for students who "just miss" the cutoff date. To register, a parent or guardian must bring the child's original birth certificate as proof of age, health appraisal with immunization record form signed by a physician, a dental health exam form, signed by a dentist (both forms are provided in the registration packet), and proof of residency in the form of a driver's license with a district address, a school tax bill or a utility bill for your residence. In addition, we require copies of custody documents to be on file for students whose parents share legal custody or a parent who has sole legal custody.
Anyone who has an eligible child and does not receive a packet by March 12 should call the district registrar at 635-4569 or 638-6050 to request a packet be mailed or you can pick up a packet as a "walk-in" at the school your child will attend in the fall during the registration hours listed above. A complete listing of addresses for each elementary attendance zone is available on the district's Registration web page at bville.org along with other valuable information regarding registration requirements and procedures.
