Kindergarten Registration

Pequannock Township School District is made up of three elementary schools. Our schools are not neighborhood schools, but we do try to place students in the closest schools possible.  

School assignments will be made in June and parents will be notified at that time. School assignment is based on special education needs and enrollment numbers. It is not based on location. Please see Board Policy # 5120 for further information. 

Kindergarten orientation will take place at your child's assigned school on a date to be determined.

 

Our procedure for Kindergarten Registration will be as follows:

  • A child must be 5 years old on or before October 1st of the school year. See board policy 5112 - Entrance Age.
  • All registrations will be completed online using the registration link   
  • When completing the online registration, continue clicking "Next Step" until all information is entered, then click "submit" to send the information to the district. 
  • An automated email will be sent with a link to upload the required documents directly to the district. Submit all documents as soon as possible.  If you are not able to upload the documents, please email them directly to colleen.smith@pequannock.org or drop them off at the Board of Education office located at 538 Newark Pompton Turnpike, Pompton Plains.
  • Required supporting documents for registration are:
    • Original Birth Certificate
    • Three proofs of residency (see Residency tab for more information)
    • Most recent physical and proof of immunizations
    • Kindergarten Packet  - includes the Home Language Survey, Parent Questionnaire, Preschool Questionnaire Release (signature only) and Oral Health Assessment
    • IEP or 504, if applicable
    • Custody papers, if applicable

Please have all registration documentation to the Board of Education office as soon as possible.  If your child has a physical in the summer, please submit the most recent physical and immunizations by June 1st and send the updated physical and immunizations after the summer appointment.

Please be aware that any initial determination of the student's eligibility to attend school in this district is subject to more thorough review and subsequent re-evaluation, and that tuition may be assessed in the event that an initially admitted student is later found ineligible.  If your student is found ineligible, now or later, you will be provided the reasons for our decision and instructions on how to appeal.

If you have any questions regarding the registration process please contact:
