How do I register my child for school?

Registration takes place in the spring of each year. To enroll, simply visit our office to fill out the necessary paperwork. When you come, please bring the following documents with you:

  • Your child’s evidence of date of birth
  • Your child’s completed immunization records
  • Your child’s physical examination reports
  • Proof of residency

If you are enrolling your child in kindergarten, he or she must be five years old by October 1 of the school year in which they will start school. See our Registration page for more information.

What should I do if my child must be absent?

If your child must be absent from school, please call the school office at (201) 261-7800, extension 8414 between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. to let us know your child’s name and the reason for the absence. Please keep sick children at home until they are well enough to participate in a full school day. Children must be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication before returning to school.

What will happen if my child becomes ill while at school?

If a student becomes ill or injured, the school nurse will administer treatment and medicine as approved and necessary. We will contact you if your child is too ill to remain in school and care for the student in our nurse’s station until a parent or guardian arrives. If the situation is a medical emergency, we will follow standard emergency procedures.
