LCSD prepares for Kindergarten Registration

The Liverpool Central School District is now preparing for kindergarten registration for the 2011-2012 school year.

Kindergarten registration packets have been mailed to prospective pupils and families with a child who is eligible to enter kindergarten (born on or before December 1, 2006). Those families who do not receive an information packet from their elementary school of residence (the student's home school) are encouraged to call their school or the Office of Elementary Education at 622-7177 for a packet.

Every elementary school will hold kindergarten registration on Thursday May 5. Parents and guardians with legal paperwork must register students in person at the elementary building of their residence (the student's home school). Note: Children who will attend private school will need to register at the District Office.

+ Original birth certificate

+ Immunization record from doctor (not transcribed in a record) a New York State requirement

+ Proof of residency (landline telephone, cable or electric bill; a signed lease or signed purchase offer)

+ Parent photo identification (parent must register child in person)

+ Certain cases may require additional documentation. These include residency affidavits, court issued custody documents, Individual Education Plan (IEP), or Foster Parent Form (DSS-2999).

According to NYS law, children entering kindergarten participate in a brief exercise called "kindergarten screening." It consists of several tasks for the child to complete. In Liverpool, students will be screened in June. Upon registration, parents will be notified of those dates.

Questions about kindergarten registration procedures should be directed to the Office of Elementary Education at 622-7177.
