1. What is the age requirement for September 2021 Kindergarten Registration?
Children must be five (5) years old on or before December 1, 2021 to be eligible for admission to Kindergarten in September 2021.
2. How can I confirm I live within Pearl River School District?
Pearl River School District boundaries include most of Pearl River and portions of Nanuet, Orangeburg, West Nyack, and Tappan. Please click the following link to review the streets included within this boundary: Pearl River School District Boundaries. Please note that out-of-district residents are not accepted on a tuition basis.
3. What if my pre-school child is currently receiving services (CPSE) or is a pre-registered Kindergartener?
If your child has already been registered for CPSE Services, Universal Pre-K, or was registered for kindergarten last year but did not attend, you should not fill out an online application. Instead, please call Mrs. Leone at 845-620-3913 to discuss the procedure for registering your child without an online application.
4. When will I find out my child's elementary building assignment?
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.
