Kindergarten registration


Kindergarten screening & registration

Screening for kindergarten classes is generally held during March at the elementary school, 165 Chadwick Road, Delanson, NY. A mailing with required registration documentation will be sent ahead of time and will indicate the registration paperwork due date.

If you are new to our district and have not completed a census form or have a kindergarten age child, please call the elementary school at (518) 895-2580. [DOWNLOAD CENSUS FORM]

Is my child eligible for kindergarten?

To be eligible to enter kindergarten in the fall, children must be 5 years old by December 1, 2018.

What do I need to do to register my child for kindergarten?

A birth certificate or other legal proof of age, guardian/ custodial documentation, immunization records, and three proofs of residency, (as outlined in Residency Requirements/Proof of Residency), are required at the time of registration.

State law requires that children have the following immunizations BEFORE they can enter kindergarten:

  • > 4-5 doses of diphtheria;
  • > 3-4 doses of polio;
  • > 3 doses of hepatitis B;
  • > 2 doses of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella); and 
  • > 2 doses of varicella (chicken pox) vaccine.

Parents of incoming kindergarten children in the district who had not received registration forms in the mail by Feb. 7 need to contact the elementary school office at (518) 895-2580 as soon as possible to complete a census form and registration documentation.
