Dear New Kindergarten Parents,
 
      Welcome! We are currently making plans for your child to register for school as a new kindergarten student for the 2017-2018 school year!  Please read through this information carefully and complete all paperwork. Kindergarten Registration (parent/guardian) will be held March 20 through March 31, 2017 from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.  Registrations will only be accepted in our District Administration Building located at 6700 Schultz Street, Niagara Falls, New York 14304.  If you are unable to register your child at this time please call Central Registration at 215-3000.  Children must be 5 years old on or before December 1, 2017 to be eligible for kindergarten this fall.
 
In addition to completing all paperwork you MUST also bring in:
  • Parent/Guardian Photo Identification
  • Your child's birth certificate or other acceptable proof of birth
  • Proof of immunizations
  • 2 proofs of residency with at least 1 being related to your primary residence
                 * Please refer to acceptable proofs of residency list enclosed
 
All paperwork enclosed and listed above needs to be processed in order for your child to be properly registered as a Niagara Wheatfield student. Kindergarten Screening (parent/guardian and child) for your child will be held at their designated elementary school June 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th, 2017. Screening is by appointment only once you have completed registration. Should any of the necessary forms be incomplete during Kindergarten Registration your child will not be scheduled for screening.  Your child's elementary school will contact you to schedule your screening appointment. The earlier you are able to register your child, the better.

August....Classroom Placement and Preparing for the Year
 
Teachers and principals work very hard to meet the academic, social, emotional, health, and other needs of every individual child as they determine classroom assignments.  Placement of our students is balanced very carefully with every child's best interest in mind.  You will be notified of your child's classroom teacher assignment in August via a letter from the elementary school.
 
We are looking forward to working with your children for many years to come!
 
Regards,
