Kindergarten Registration in Oysterponds
Oysterponds School District will hold kindergarten registration Wednesday and Thursday, April 1st and 2nd from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the school. Children must be 5 on or before Dec. 1, 2015, to enter kindergarten in September. You may request a registration packet before the registration dates, by calling 323-2410 Ext. 100.
Parents must bring the child’s original birth certificate, immunization record and three proofs of residency (items with the home address printed on them). Legally separated or divorced parents must bring the original proof of custody stating where and when the child lives within the district. It is not necessary to bring the child to registration.
The school district also wishes to identify all resident children under age 5 who, because of a disability, may need special education services now or when they enter kindergarten. Disabilities may include such problems as slow speech/language development, emotional difficulties, slow learning, hearing problems or vision impairment.
If a resident’s child has been identified as having a disability, or if anyone knows of such a child in the community, contact the school to request information be sent to the child’s family. By identifying disabled preschoolers, the district can provide help before the children enter kindergarten and plan for their needs after they enter school. All information will remain confidential.
