Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) Students for the 2020-21 School Year
Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) Registration
Universal Pre-K Registration: Register Online
We are asking that you complete our online UPK registration. Once the completed registration packet is received and reviewed, our Pupil-Personnel Department Secretary, Margaret Harkin, may contact you with any questions she might have about your application or to remind you of any missing documents required for registration. When your child is registered, their name will be added to a list from which our UPK students will be chosen. Our full-day Universal Pre-K enrollment is based on need. Students who receive Special Education supports, those eligible for free/reduced lunch, and/or those who are English Language Learners will be enrolled first. All other children will be chosen randomly by lottery for our full-day or half-day programs. Once the program is full, we keep up-to-date wait lists for both full and half-day slots.
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.
