Glen Rock District Sets Dates in January for New Student Registration for Kindergarten through Fifth Grade

208

Kindergarten registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be held at the Glen Rock Public Library from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Thursday, January 9, 2020, and Wednesday, January 15, 2020. Children must be five years of age on or before October 1, 2020, to register. The school district is emphasizing that for the convenience of all families, no appointments are necessary, and all registrations will be treated equally, with no “first come, first served” preference given.

Resident families with children entering grades 1 – 5 next year who are not currently attending Glen Rock Public Schools are also invited to attend registration following the schedule above.

Families can access registration packets, including residency and age requirements and health forms via the district website at www.glenrocknj.org. Click on Our District and look for Registration under Contact.

The steps for Kindergarten placement will follow the same sequence as last year. School assignments for all registrants will be determined through a process that seeks to balance enrollment figures across the four elementary schools, taking into consideration the presence of siblings. Families who complete the registration on January 9 or 15 will be notified of their child’s school placement in the spring of 2020. Families who register after those dates will receive their child’s school placement in late August.

A future announcement will be made regarding time and place of parent orientation and student “Round-Up” at all elementary schools.
