The Greenwich Public Elementary Schools have announced plans to welcome and register incoming – Fall 2017 – kindergarten children and their parents.
The process begins with a Kindergarten Orientation program for parents at each of the schools now on March 17, 2017. The originally scheduled orientation on March 15 has been cancelled due to the weather. Parents are then asked to make an appointment in March/April (see school schedules attached for specific dates) for Kindergarten Registration to verify residency and register incoming Kindergarteners at their respective schools. In June 2017, incoming Kindergarteners are invited to experience Kindergarten classrooms in their school on Kindergarten Visitation day – June 6, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please see attached Kindergarten Orientation and Registration schedules for each of the Greenwich Public Elementary Schools.
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 2017 who do not receive a letter from the school in their attendance area should contact that school office for information on this process. Children who turn five (5) by December 31, 2017 are eligible for Kindergarten.
Although age 5 is the compulsory age for students to enter kindergarten, parents may choose to have their child wait until age 6, but they must sign a form at the Board of Education. They may decide again, when their child is 6, to have the child home for another year. By age 7, the child must attend school or be schooled at home.
Dismissal/buses for this year’s kindergarten classes will be at 12:00 noon on June 6.
