Kindergarten registration is next week

Registration for children entering kindergarten in September for the 2014-2015 school year will take place next week in the south gym at Miller-Driscoll School. Signs will be posted outside the school.

Kindergarten enrollment is open to children who will be five years old on or before Dec. 31, 2014.

Parents who intend to register their children for kindergarten may do so between 9:30 and 2:30 according to the following schedule. If there is a delayed opening registration will begin at 11.

• Tuesday, Jan. 14 — Children born in January, February, March or April;

• Wednesday, Jan. 15 — Children born in May, June, July or August;

• Thursday, Jan. 16 — Children born in September, October, November or December.

If school is canceled for any reason on any of the days above, registration will take place Friday,  Jan. 17.

First-time entrants in first and second grade may also register on any of the above days during the same hours and at the same location.

Must-haves 

The following items must be presented at the time of registration regardless of the grade the child is entering:

• Original birth certificate or current passport. (A hospital certificate is not considered an official document).

• Proof of residency required: current real estate tax bill, deed, closing document, lease (if renting), driver’s license and current utility bill (CL&P, oil or water bill showing Wilton address).

• Completed State of Connecticut health form signed by your physician. If your child’s physical will not be completed by January, please bring a copy of the immunization record.

Children need not be present during the registration process; completion of necessary paperwork is all that will be required at this time.

A kindergarten orientation program for children and parents will be scheduled at Miller-Driscoll School in the spring.
