IN THE PORT WASHINGTON SCHOOL DISTRICT

If your family includes a child who will be entering the Port Washington public school system, including Kindergarten, this information is important to you.
The registration packet can be downloaded from this website (links on the left) or picked up in the Administrative Annex at 90 Avenue C. Please understand that in accordance with Board of Education policies 5140, 5150, and 5153, no child will be admitted to school without all the necessary forms completed. All documents are required at time of registration. (Please note: several documents in the packet must be notarized prior to coming in to register.)
- Registration for Kindergarten only will take place beginning in January for the following September. It is important that appointments are scheduled early so that the school district will know the number of children entering each elementary school and have teachers in place for the right number of sections in each school. Children must be five years old by December 1st in the year they will begin Kindergarten.
- Students planning to enter Weber Middle School (grades six through eight) in September can register beginning in March. Early registration is encouraged to ensure that middle school students can attend orientation sessions and have their schedules processed along with continuing students. Students transferring from another middle school during the school year must register as soon as possible and are asked to bring their school records with them.
- Students who are transferring into Schreiber High School in September are encouraged to register as soon as possible. High school registrations are accepted in March after the winter vacation to make sure that students are notified of placement exams. High school students who are transferring from another school during the school year must register as soon as possible and are asked to bring their school records with them.
