Kindergarten Registration

Welcome, families of 5-year-olds!

The Glens Falls City School District has a vibrant academic program for our youngest students, designed to foster a love of learning that carries them all the way to graduation and beyond. We welcome new families into this educational journey, and look forward to partnering with parents to help our children succeed.

Kindergarten Round-Up

Registration for new kindergarten students is held at Kindergarten Round-Up events at each elementary school in March. If you aren’t sure which elementary school your child will attend, see the map of elementary school boundaries.

Kindergarten students must be 5 years old by Dec. 1 in order to start school in September. Certain immunizations, proof of residence and an original birth certificate are required for admission. 

At your Round-Up appointment, a registered nurse will be present to meet with families and review children’s medical information. State law requires every child entering school to have had specific vaccines

A pre-school physical examination by your family physician is also required, and the report should be brought in at registration or before school starts in September. The physical exam report is due no later than opening day in September.
