The Liverpool Central School District is preparing for kindergartenstorytime teacher registration for the 2016-2017 school year. All resident students born on or before December 1, 2011, are eligible to register for kindergarten for the 2016-2017 school year.

Please take a moment to read the following information to find out more about registering students for kindergarten.

It is important for families to know that all registration forms must be submitted, and approved, before a spot will be held for a student.


Information Packets

In February, kindergarten registration packets will be mailed to families that we know have a child eligible to enter kindergarten. Please contact your home school to be placed on its mailing list.

Registration Date

Each elementary school will hold kindergarten registration on Thursday, March 17. Registration must be done in person by the resident parent or legal guardian at the elementary school of their residence. Note: Children who will attend a private, parochial or charter school need to be registered at the District Office during normal business hours (7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
