Kindergarten & TK registration set for Jan. 11 & 12 UPDATED Jan. 5
Glen Rock District sets Kindergarten/Transitional Kindergarten registration for early January
Kindergarten registration for the 2017-18 school year will be held at the Glen Rock Public Library from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on January 11 and 12, 2017. Children must be five years of age on or before Oct. 1, 2017 in order to register. The school district is emphasizing that for the convenience of all families, no appointments are necessary, and all registrations will be treated equally, with no “first come, first served” preference given.
Resident families with children entering grades 1-5 next year who are not currently attending Glen Rock Public Schools are also invited to attend registration following the schedule above.
Families can access registration packets, including residency and age requirements and health forms via the district website at www.glenrocknj.org. Click on the Parents/Students tab and select Registration Information from the drop-down menu. All necessary documents for proof of residency and birthdate must be presented at the time of registration. School personnel will be on hand to answer questions.
The steps for Kindergarten placement will follow the same sequence as last year. School assignment for all registrants will be determined through a process that seeks to balance enrollment figures across the four elementary schools, taking into consideration the presence of siblings. Families who complete registration on Jan. 11 or 12 will be notified of their child’s school placement in the spring of 2017. Families who register after those dates will receive their child’s school placement in late August.
Registration for the Transitional Kindergarten program of the Glen Rock Community School will also be held at that time. In order to provide students with the best possible preparation for full-day Kindergarten, the TK program will now run from 8:45 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. Staff will be available to answer questions and review the program with interested parents. Additional information and registration materials are available on the Transitional Kindergarten page of the Community School website at www.grcsonline.com.
A future announcement will be made regarding time and place of Kindergarten parent orientation and student “Round-Up" at all elementary schools.
