Fall 2013: Kindergarten orientation process underway

The Greenwich Public Elementary Schools have announced plans to welcome and register incoming — fall 2013 — kindergarten children and their parents.

The process begins with a Kindergarten Orientation program for parents at each of the schools this month. Parents are then asked to make an appointment in March for kindergarten registration to verify residency and register incoming kindergartners at their respective schools. In May, incoming kindergartners are invited to experience kindergarten classrooms in their school on Kindergarten Visitation Day, which takes place on May 16 from 1 to 3 p.m.

All schools will mail invitations for Kindergarten Visitation Day to families that have registered and/or are otherwise known to the schools as having incoming kindergarten students. Parents/guardians that have a child entering kindergarten in the fall of 2013 who do not receive a letter from the school in their attendance area should contact that school office for information on this process. Children that turn five  by Dec. 31, 2013 are eligible for Kindergarten.

Dismissal and buses for this year’s kindergarten classes will be at noon on May 16. For more information on the registration and residency verification process, visit the Greenwich Public Schools’ website at Greenwichschools.org.
