Students and their parents/guardians must be residents of the Sandy Creek Central School District.

If there is a question, proof of custody may also be required.

Please review the “Guide to the New Rules for School Registration” found on the district website ( to better understand these requirements.

Your child will not be officially registered and will be unable to attend without proof of birth and immunization records.

Pre-Kindergarten registration documents will be available on the school district website after December 14 (

You may find the Pre-K registration documents under the “Parent” link or the “Schools” link on the district homepage.

Registration documents may also be picked up at the Sandy Creek Elementary School office any time after December 14 during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Registration packets can also be completed at school during walk-in registration session.

Parents may register their child(ren) in one of three ways:

1) Mail in registration. Complete all registration forms and provide all required documentation. Mail all registration documents to:
Sandy Creek Elementary School
c/o Elizabeth McKenzie
P.O. Box 248
Sandy Creek, NY 13145
All forms must be postmarked by January 25, 2016. Any forms postmarked after that date will not be accepted and students will be required to attend the walk-in registration.

2) Drop off registration. Drop off all completed documents for review to the Sandy Creek Elementary School main office from December 14, 2015 to January 25, 2016 during regular business hours.
Any forms dropped off after that date will not be accepted and students will be required to attend the walk-in registration.

3) Walk-in registration. Walk-in registration for Pre-K will be held on February 3 and 4 from 1 – 6 p.m. each day in the elementary school lobby. Parents should bring all completed registration forms and required documents.

If more than 40 students are officially registered at the end of the day on February 4, all candidates will enter a lottery and the first 40 drawn are those chosen to participate. If 40 or less register, all candidates can participate from the start.

A waiting list is established if we exceed the maximum of 40 students after the registration date.

Mandatory Pre-K screening will be held in June and all prospective students must attend to hold their slot. Each student will participate in hearing and vision screening and speech/language screening.

A letter will be sent home in April with dates and times for screening.

Attendance at screening is mandatory to maintain each Pre-K slot.
