FROM THE DESK OF SUPERINTENDENT DR. GIARRIZZO

North Shore Schools 2019-2020 Kindergarten Registration Begins

January 2019

Dear Parents,                         

In September 2019, your child will enter Kindergarten and the start of an exciting journey.  The first step into school is one of the passages in life that marks the beginning of new experiences and relationships. It begins an educational experience that will serve as a foundation for their future. 

During the weeks of Kindergarten Registration and Orientation, you will learn more about our Kindergarten program and about our schools.  First, you must complete a registration process that provides us assurance of your residency in the North Shore School District and the necessary demographic information on your youngster. Parents enrolling their child in non-public (private and parochial) schools must also prove residency and meet eligibility requirements in order to qualify for transportation and textbooks.

The first step in this process is to complete a residency packet in order to prove residency within the North Shore School District.  You may obtain this packet in person at the main office at any of the three elementary schools or on the district website.  Upon completing the required documents, please call Mrs. Katherine Miller, Registrar for the North Shore Schools, at #516-277-7824 to schedule an appointment to review your completed documents.  Appointments for proving residency will be available beginning January 28, 2018 thru March 15, 2018.  This meeting should take no more than ten or fifteen minutes.  At this meeting, you will receive a second packet of information pertaining to the second step in the process, which is to register your child at the appropriate elementary school. 

Please note the following school registration/screening dates for the Elementary Schools:

Glenwood Landing March 25 through March 29, 2019 
Sea Cliff     March 25 through March 29, 2019
Glen Head  April 8 – 12 – 17, 2019


The third step in preparation for Kindergarten will be orientation.  Your school will contact you with the dates and details regarding the orientation program during which you will have an opportunity to become better acquainted with the school, the principal, and some of the people who your child will work with beginning in September.

Welcome to North Shore. I trust that the next thirteen years will be ones of fulfillment and growth.

Sincerely,

Peter Giarrizzo, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
