Students are admitted in two ways: (1) by reaching the entrance age (age 4 for Prekindergarten and age 5 for Kindergarten) by the required deadline and (2) by transferring from private or parochial school, or from public schools in NYC, or from other school districts. Students entering for the first time must have a birth certificate and evidence of proper immunization. The child must enroll under full legal name.
It may become necessary for some students to leave school during the year. Parents must notify the child’s teacher and the office two weeks in advance so the transfer will be speedy and efficient. Library books and all text books must be returned before a transfer will be issued. All transfers are given to parents only.
Students will be released only to parents and guardians with the proper identification as well as those added to the child’s emergency card. Parents are also required to sign out his/her child. This is for your child’s safety.
