Oysterponds School District will hold kindergarten registration Wednesday and Thursday, April 1 and 2, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Orient school. Children must turn 5 on or before Dec. 1 to enter kindergarten in September. To request a registration packet, call 323-2410, ext. 100.
Parents must bring the child’s original birth certificate, immunization record and three proofs of residency (items printed with the home address). Legally separated or divorced parents must bring original proof of custody stating where and when the child lives within the district. Children need not attend registration.
The school district also wishes to identify resident children under age 5 who, because of a disability, may need special education services now or when they enter kindergarten. Disabilities may include slow speech/language development, emotional difficulties, slow learning and hearing or vision problems.
If a child in the community has been identified as having a disability, contact the school to request that information be sent to the child’s family. All information will remain confidential.
