As part of its annual "Kindergarten Registration Month," the Mamaroneck School District is putting out early feelers for any kids who may attend Mamaroneck public schools in the Fall of 2013, said Debbie Manetta, spokesperson for the District.
In addition to reaching out to preschools to obtain contact information for parents of prospective kindergarteners, the District is also asking parents to come in to register their children by the end of February.
Students must meet the following requirements:
Potential kindergarten students must turn five by Dec.31, 2013 and might be headed toward Chatsworth Avenue, Murray Avenue or Mamaroneck Avenue schools. The District is requesting that parents come in to school to register their children sometime during this month.
Registration is a two-step process: First, parents pick up a complete registration packet at their “home” elementary school. (They are currently available for pick-up any day during school hours). Then, when they have completed the packet and are ready to register their child, they must return it in person to the school and bring with them:
- Student registration form
- Birth certificate or passport
- 3 Proofs of residency:
- For owners: Deed, mortgage contract or tax bill, PLUS driver’s license and auto insurance card or electric and telephone bills
- For renters: Lease and notarized affidavit, PLUS driver’s license and auto insurance cardor electric and telephone bills
- Record of immunization
“We look forward to welcoming our newest kindergartners in the fall and ask that prospective parents complete an official registration packet this month so we may be able to estimate enrollment,” said Manetta, in a statement. “We’ll hold the orientation for parents and incoming kindergarten students in May to familiarize newcomers with our schools and answer any questions they may have.”
