ELCS announces kindergarten registration

ELIZABETHTOWN - Registration for the fall kindergarten class at Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School will be held on Wednesday, March 24, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Thursday, March 25 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Main Office of the school.

Any child who will be five years old on or before Dec. 1 is eligible for registration. Registration forms are required. District residents may pick up registration forms at the ELCS Main Office. Please call 873-6371 (ext. 500). If you are unable to make the March registration days please call the Main Office as soon as possible.

Parents are required to bring their child's Birth Certificate or Baptismal Certificate, Social Security number and record of immunizations when registering.

Under Public Health Law, to be optimally immunized, the following immunizations are required: polio (3) measles, mumps, and rubella (2), D.P.T. (3) varicella (1) and hepatitis B (3). Immunizations must be completed and a copy of your child's birth or baptismal certificate must be on file before school starts in September. In addition, as of September 2008, parents must request a dental health certificate from their dentist for all students entering kindergarten. A completed physical form will also be needed upon entering to school.

A kindergarten screening day is being planned to give the children an opportunity to visit at a later date. Therefore, do not bring your child with you on registration day. More information regarding the kindergarten screening will be available at a later time. Call 873-6371 ext. 500 with any questions.
