• Due to COVID-19, our Kindergarten and First grade registration process has changed for the 2023-2024 school year.  Please see the updated registration guidelines below.


    All students entering kindergarten or first grade for the 2023-2024 school year need to register for school, unless they are already a student in the district.

    Children must be 5 years of age by October 1st of their kindergarten year to register for kindergarten and 6 years of age by October 1st of their first grade year to register for first grade.

    OPEN-ENROLLMENT (December 22, 2022 - March 1, 2023)

    All registration will be completed using our online process. Please remember to select the 2023-2024 school year!  If you do not have Internet access, contact us at 732-786-2529.
