The process begins with a kindergarten orientation program for parents at each of the schools on Feb. 21 and in case of snow, an alternate date of Feb. 26.

At this meeting, parents will be asked to make an appointment in March 2014 for kindergarten registration to verify residency and register incoming kindergartners at their respective schools.

At Cos Cob School, orientation will be at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Feb. 21, and registration on March 24 to 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., by appointment.

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 and guardians that have a child entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2014 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 years old by Dec. 31 are eligible to attend kindergarten.

Dismissal for this year’s kindergarten classes will be at noon on May 14.
