Hello to the Parents of the Class of 2035!

Here are some things to know to get you started:

Kindergarten Eligibility 
Children can be enrolled for kindergarten or our Young Fives program if they turn five on or before December 1, 2022.  Please note – If your child is born between September 2 and December 1, 2017, you will need to complete a waiver to register in Utica Community Schools. You may find the waiver hereA waiver is not required for children who were born on or before September 1, 2017. 

Young Fives Program
The Young Fives program provides young children additional time to prepare for a successful kindergarten and school experience. The program fosters social, emotional, physical and academic development through a year of growth and discovery for children who need additional time for development and maturity before entering kindergarten. Students who take part in the Young Fives program will transition to traditional kindergarten the following school year.  The program is recommended for students with birthdays between September 1 and December 1, 2017.

Parents should begin the registration process by selecting "kindergarten" as the grade level for enrollment, and then select "yes" when asked whether they want to pursue the Young Fives Program for their child.

More information is available at this link.
