Elementary School Assignments
In order to plan and provide for all new students, it is especially important that the district identify
all children expected to enroll in September. Pearl River's three elementary schools - Evans Park,
Franklin Avenue, and Lincoln Avenue - accommodate students in grades kindergarten through four. Enrollment is assigned across all three schools. While geographic boundaries serve as a general guideline, school assignment will depend on class size and special education and ENL programming. Families will be notified regarding building assignment in the summer.
All universal pre-school students need to be registered and screened. If your child is already registered (CPSE), please contact Mrs. Leone at 620-3913 to make sure your information is up-to-date. If you would like to have your CPSE child participate in the screening process, you may do so.
