Milford kindergarten registration going on now

Parents with children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall (for the 2012-13 academic year) are asked to call their local school to schedule an appointment to register as soon as possible.  Parents can pick up registration materials at the school during normal operating hours. 

A child must reach the age of 5 before the end of the year (2012) in order to start kindergarten this fall.  At the time of registration, parents must bring the following items to complete the registration process:

- A certified copy of the child’s birth certificate (with a raised seal);
- A record of any communicable diseases the child may have had;
- A record of the child’s immunization schedule; and
- Two proofs of residency (examples include a current utility bill, mortgage receipt/rent receipt).

Before entry into school in August, each child must have a physical examination that includes a hemoglobin or hematocrit test, vision, hearing, and speech screening.  The physical examination cannot have been done earlier than 12 months prior to the date the child enters school.

For more information, please contact your neighborhood school or search our website at  Questions may also be directed to Beth McIlhoney in the Asst. Superintendent’s Office at (203) 783-3422.
