OSWEGO, NY – Kindergarten registration is rapidly approaching in the Oswego City School District.
This year kindergarten registration will be from February 23 to 27.
Registration will take place in the school your child will be attending the week of February 23 to 27.
Registration packets will be mailed on or before February 6 to every child that will turn the age of five on or before December 1.
To register, parents or guardians must bring the registration packet, birth certificate, proof of immunization, proof of residency and custody paperwork if applicable.
Once again registration will be conducted in the school where the child will attend and registration hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Students who attend the Universal Pre-Kindergarten will not need to register or be pre-screened.
But, they are asked to provide updated immunization records.
A notification of which immunizations your child still needs will be sent to you during the summer, a dental certificate, which NYS law allows schools to request, and a physical form which will need to be completed and signed by your physician and returned.
If someone has a child who is eligible to attend kindergarten and has not received a packet please contact the elementary school offices or the school registrar at the phone numbers listed below.
Questions will be answered by calling Charles E. Riley at 341-2800, Frederick Leighton at 341-2700, Fitzhugh Park at 341-2040, Kingsford Park at 341-2500, Minetto Elementary at 341-2600 and the school registrar at 341-2045.
All students will be involved in kindergarten screening and parents will be asked to sign up for screening at the time they register their child for kindergarten.
