Registration Information for Pre-K

Pre-school registration 

Although the Project Excel program is closing at the end of the 2021-22 school year, the district still intends to have a pre-school program available for three and four-year old students in the fall of the 2022-23 school year. To that end, families with three and four-year old children may register for the new program on school days between April 1 and April 30. 

Step 1:

Interested parents must call the registrar’s office at 845-794-0128, ext. 78905 to make an appointment to register their child for either program during the month of April.

Step 2: 

Complete the online pre-registration 

Arrive to your registration appointment, with all necessary documentation: 

  • Child’s birth certificate 
  • Child’s most recent immunization record and physical
  • Proof of residence (electric bill, lease, tax bill, etc.)
  • Parent’s photo ID (driver’s license, etc.)
  • Custody papers, if applicable

Who is eligible to register?

Children must be three years of age by Dec. 1, 2022 to register for the three-year old program and children must be four years of age by Dec. 1, 2022 to register for the four-year-old program.

The program will be lottery-based, and the families of students who receive a spot in the program will be notified in May. You must be registered in April to be eligible for the lottery. If all spots are not filled, the program will then open up for registration on a first-come, first-served basis.   

More information will be shared with families as the program is developed.
