Liverpool CSD Prepares for K Registration

Tuesday, January 5, 2021

Liverpool Central School District children who will be five years of age on or before December 1 are eligible to attend kindergarten starting in September of each school year.

Students Entering School During the 2021 - 2022 School Year
Prospective families with a child who is eligible to enter kindergarten (born on or before December 1, 2016) in September 2021, can start the registration process by filling out the online forms on the main page of the Student Registration Web site at http://www.liverpool.k12.ny.us/index.php/parents/student-registration/. Please fill out ALL FIVE REGISTRATION FORMS (five separate links).

Information Packets
Kindergarten registration letters will be mailed to prospective pupils and families who have a child eligible to enter kindergarten (born on or before December 1, 2016). Families who do not receive a letter from the school during the first week of January 2021 are encouraged to call their child's assigned homeschool or the office of Elementary Education at 315-622-7177 for further information. 

Registration Dates
In the past, Kindergarten Registration was held on three separate nights at the Liverpool CSD District Office. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, registration will be conducted by appointment only at the Registration Office (195 Blackberry Road).

Kindergarten Registration will take place from January 25 to March 31, 2021. Parents and guardians may start their child's registration early, by visiting the Liverpool CSD's Online Student Registration page and completing ALL FIVE registration links.

The Registration Office has reserved the following dates for those needing in-person late afternoon or early evening appointments:
* February 2, 2021
* February 3, 2021
* February 4, 2021


The Registration Office encourages all families to fill out ALL FIVE REGISTRATION FORMS  online. Once those online forms have been completed, a parent or guardian  MUST NOTIFY the Registration Office by phone (315 622-7193) or by e-mail to Susan Graves (sgraves@liverpool.k12.ny.us).


Once notified, the Registration Office will schedule an appointment for a primary parent or guardian (required) at the District Office (195 Blackberry Road). The parent or guardian will be asked to provide the district with the required documentation (listed below) to finalize registration. The office is no longer accepting walk-in appointments and requests that when possible only one person attend the registration appointment. Students DO NOT need to attend.


Please bring the following pieces of information with you once you finalize registration:
* Proof of Student's Age
   * Birth Certificate (certified transcript of a birth certificate)
   * Record of Baptism
   * Passport
* Immunization Record from Doctor
   * Not transcribed in a record (N.Y.S. Requirement)
* Proof of Residency
* Current copy of one of the following:
   * Signed Lease
   * Telephone Bill
   * Cable Bill
   * Gas/Electric/Oil Bill
* Resident Parent Photo Identification
* Some additional documents may be necessary, if applicable:
   * Residency affidavits
   * Proof of Guardianship/Custody
   * IEP for current CPSE students
   * Foster Parent Form (DSS-2999)

PLEASE NOTE: The child’s place in their Kindergarten class WILL NOT BE HELD until all registration documents have been submitted and approved.

Kindergarten Screening
According to NYS law, children entering kindergarten participate in a brief exercise called "kindergarten screening." It consists of several tasks for the child to complete. In Liverpool, students will be screened in June. Screenings will be coordinated at the building level following registration, and at future dates prior to the start of school.

Additional Information
Kindergarten students registering after the last day of the school year must enroll at the Registration Office (District Office, 195 Blackberry Road). Questions about kindergarten registration procedures should be directed to the child’s future home school building or the Registration Office (315-622-7193).
