Naugatuck schools announce kindergarten registration

NAUGATUCK — The Naugatuck public school system is holding kindergarten registration in March.

Children must turn 5 years old by Jan. 1, 2017 to be eligible for kindergarten for the 2016-17 school year. Forms for kindergarten registration are available in all Naugatuck elementary schools. Parents should call the elementary school that their child will attend and arrange to pick up the required forms. At that time, an appointment will also be made on March 7, March 8, March 9 or March 10 for parents to return completed forms and have their child receive a vision and hearing test.

Parents must present the child’s birth certificate along with proof of immunization. A completed physical conducted on Aug. 31, 2015, or later, will be acceptable. Parents must also provide proof of residency. The guardian of any child attending the public schools within the district must also provide proof of guardianship.
