B'ville: Kindergarten registration set for March 29, 30

Kindergarten open registration for the 2011- 12 school year will take place at the elementary schools in the Baldwinsville Central School District from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday March 29 and from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday March 30.

Families currently on the district student database will receive an informational letter and registration packet in the mail by March 11. If you have a child who does not attend a local preschool or daycare, please call the district registrar at 635-4569 as soon as possible 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 at which school to register their children, 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, 2011. 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 provide the district with all of the following:

    Completed registration packet;

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;

Child's original birth certificate as proof of age;

Completed health appraisal with immunization record form signed by a physician or current immunization record and the date of scheduled exam with the physician, to be completed by Sept. 1, 2011; and

Dental health exam form, signed by a dentist.

In addition, the district requires copies of custody documents to be on file for students whose parents share legal custody and for students that have a parent who has sole legal custody.

Anyone who has an eligible child and does not receive a packet by March 11 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. You can find additional information regarding registration on the district web site at bville.org.
