Kindergarten Registration

2023-24 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

Each year Hawthorne Elementary School eagerly awaits the arrival of our new kindergartners. Children entering kindergarten must be born on or before December 1, 2018.  If you have a kindergarten student that will be joining the district in September 2023, please read below. 

These three steps MUST be completed before February 1, 2023:

NOTE: If you already have a child or children enrolled in the Mt. Pleasant Central School District, please login to the online parent portal.  Once in, click the Register New Student button (top right).

 

 

  • STEP 3: The following medical documentation must be received to complete the registration process:

 

  1. A current New York State Health  exam completed by your child’s physician. The exam is valid for a period of ONE year from the completion date. (For example, if your child’s physical exam was completed in August 2022, they will require an updated physical in August 2023.)
  2. Immunization Record: An up-to-date immunization record must be provided. Please use the chart below to verify your child has ALL necessary immunizations.

 

The nurse’s office will review these submitted health documents and will make you aware of any missing immunization(s) requiredPlease note that your child will not be fully registered until he/she has been cleared by the school nurse.

 

NOTE: Registration cannot take place until these documents are received.

 

IMPORTANT: In-person appointments will be scheduled only after all documentations are submitted online.

  

After these three steps are complete, the Registrar will call you to set-up a 20-minute, in-person meeting to finalize the registration process by receiving your Mt. Pleasant original forms and reviewing your original / personal documents.

-Registration meetings will be on a rolling basis starting in mid-February 2023 at the District Office (825 Westlake Drive, Thornwood, NY 10594). For those parents in this group, you will be required to set up a meeting with the Hawthorne Elementary School Nurse, Lisa Ciliberti, so she can review your child’s medical records. (914) 769-8536 ext. 4700.  This meeting should take place after registration has been finalized with the Registrar.

-Registration meetings at Hawthorne Elementary School (225 Memorial Drive, Hawthorne, NY 10532) will take place March 6-10 and March 13-15, 2023, between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:00 pm.  The school nurse will be available during these scheduled meetings to review the New York State Health Exam & immunization record for your child(ren).

FOR PARENTS OF CURRENT CPSE STUDENTS:

If you registered your child with Mt. Pleasant CSD for CPSE services after July 2022, you do not need to re-register your kindergarten aged child for September 2023, but you MUST upload your child's most recent physical and immunization records online.

If you registered your child for CPSE services before July 2022, you will need to complete the online eSchoolData application by clicking Online Registration at the bottom of the box.  Also, upload all registration documents online (STEP 1 and 2 above).  We will require a quick in-person appointment, which will be scheduled upon completion of STEP 1 and 2.

DIAL-4 SCREENING: Your child will be invited to Hawthorne Elementary for the DIAL-4 screening assessment, which will focus on motor, language, and conceptual skills.  DIAL-4 screenings for students receiving CPSE services will take place in March 2023 (dates to be determined and communicated later).  For all other students, DIAL-4 screenings will take place May 22-25 and May 30 & 31, 2023 

KINDERGARTEN ORIENTATION:  As part of the kindergarten intake process you will be invited to one of our Kindergarten Orientation sessions.  This orientation will take place on April 19 and 20, 2023 at 3:00pm at Hawthorne Elementary.

Hawthorne Elementary will follow up with more information regarding screening and orientation.

Thank you for your time during this process.  We are looking forward to working together to support your child in a safe environment.
