New Castle, Mohawk schedule kindergarten registration


The district will begin registering students for the Croton pre-kindergarten program on Monday, Tuesday and March 14.

Registration will be done from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day at the Croton school, 420 Fern St.

District officials said early registration is critical to avoid being placed on a waiting list for enrollment.

The pre-kindergarten program is offered in morning and afternoon sessions — 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 3 p.m.

Bus transportation is provided for district students.

Non-district residents may register with an assessed tuition rate. That information is available by calling the business office at (724) 656-4768.

Anyone with questions regarding enrollment for the 2013-14 school year may contact the district at (724) 656-4815.


Kindergarten registration has been scheduled for district children who will be 5 years old before Sept. 1.
