To Parents and Guardians of incoming Kindergarten students for the 2019-20 School Year

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Onteora Central School District is implementing a new registration system this year, so you will no longer receive paper registration packets unless you specifically request them.  We are implementing an Online Registration process that will make student registration more convenient, more efficient and more environmentally conscious.  You will no longer need to make an appointment to meet in person with our District Registrar, although she is always available to answer questions or provide assistance.

Kindergarten Registration

We are asking that you complete our online Kindergarten registration by clicking this link "Register Online".  Once the completed registration packet is received and reviewed, our District Registrar, Sharon Wood, may contact you with any questions she might have about your application or to remind you of any missing documents required for registration.  As soon as your child is registered, they will be assigned an appointment for Kindergarten Screening. 

* If you require assistance with the registration packet or do not have access to a computer, please call Sharon Wood at (845) 657-6383 X. 1023 for further assistance.

Kindergarten Screening

Our Kindergarten screening will be centralized this year, and will be held at the Central Administration Offices at our Boiceville, NY Campus.  Our Kindergarten teachers, primary school nurses, speech pathologists and occupational therapists will be on hand to screen your child and answer any questions you might have.  Kindergarten screening will be held the week of May 6 – 10, 2019.  You will receive detailed information about screening when your child’s appointment is made.  Around the middle of June, Kindergarten parent information nights will be held in both of our primary schools.  You will receive more information about our Kindergarten parent information nights at Kindergarten screening.

Please check the Onteora Central School District website for updates about our new online registration system.  We will also advertise on Facebook, in local newspapers, and through our local daycare centers and preschools as we approach our planned registration dates.

 

Sincerely,

Cindy Bishop
Director of Pupil Personnel Services
