OSWEGO, NY – Kindergarten registration is rapidly approaching in the Oswego City School District.
This year registration will be from Feb. 27 to March 2.
Registration will take place in the school your child will be attending. Registration packets have been mailed to every child that will turn the age of five on or before Dec. 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 could attend and registration hours are 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. With the district currently investigating redistricting a child might not attend school where they originally register.
Students who attended Universal Pre-Kindergarten will not need to register or be re-screened. But 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 341-2400, Kingsford Park at 341-2500, and Minetto Elementary at 341-2600, and 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.
