In September 2017, your child will enter Kindergarten and the start of an exciting journey. The first step into school is one of the passages in life that marks the beginning of new experiences and relationships. It begins an educational experience that will serve as a foundation for their future.
During the Kindergarten Registration Week and Orientation Week, you will learn more about our Kindergarten program and about our schools. First you must complete a registration process that provides us assurance of your residency in the North Shore Schools and the necessary demographic information on your youngster. Parents enrolling their child in non-public (private and parochial) schools must also prove residency and meet eligibility requirements in order to qualify for transportation and textbooks.
The first step in this process is to complete a residency packet. You may obtain this packet in person at the main office at any of the three elementary schools. Upon completing the required documents, please call Mrs. Katherine Miller, Registrar for the North Shore Schools, at 277-7824 to schedule an appointment to review your completed documents. Appointments will be available beginning January 23, 2017.This meeting should take no more than ten or fifteen minutes. At this meeting you will receive a second packet of information pertaining to the second step in the process, which is to register your child at the appropriate elementary school.
Please note the following registration dates for the Elementary Schools:
Glenwood Landing: March 20 thru March 24, 2017
Sea Cliff: March 28, 2017
Glen Head: April 17, 19, 25, 27, 2017
The third step in preparation for Kindergarten will be orientation. Your school will contact you with the dates and details regarding the orientation program during which you will have an opportunity to become better acquainted with the school, the principal and some of the people who your child will work with beginning in September.
Superintendent Dr. Edward Melnick and everyone at the North Shore School District warmly welcome you and your family to North Shore. The next thirteen years will be ones filled with fulfillment and growth.
