2017-18 Kindergarten Registration Info

Filed in Archive by on December 29, 2016

If you have a child who will turn five years old on or before December 1, 2017, you will want to take note of Bethlehem’s kindergarten registration, which begins January 5 for the 2017-18 school year. Kindergarten registration information was mailed to all eligible families currently in the district’s database. If you did not receive a kindergarten registration packet, please fill out a Preschool Student Information Form [electronic form] for your child and a packet will be mailed to you. This packet includes registration materials, including detailed information on the documents you will need to register your child for kindergarten.

The Bethlehem Central School District offers a full day kindergarten program. Parents of incoming kindergartners are asked to complete all registration forms and bring the forms, and required documentation, with them when they register in person.

In-Person Kindergarten Registration: Thursday, January 5 – Friday, February 10, 2017.

  • Location: Educational Services Center, Bethlehem Central High School, 700 Delaware Avenue, Delmar, NY 12054.
  • Hours: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. If you are unable to register during these hours, please call (518) 439-2442, to schedule another time.

Having all forms completed and reviewed and all required documentation in hand at the time of registration will help streamline the process. Once your child has been registered, you will be notified of your home elementary school. The home elementary school is the school your child will attend in grades k-5. You will be given additional forms to be completed and asked to make an appointment for a screening at the time of registering. Screenings will take place at your home elementary school, dates to be announced.
