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.

To register for pre-kindergarten, a student must be 4 years old by Sept. 1. Parents or guardians must present proof of residence in the district for enrollment. In addition, a birth certificate and immunization record are required.

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.

Screenings will be conducted on May 7 and 8 at the elementary school.

Those wishing to register a child in kindergarten should contact the school to pick up an enrollment packet. That packet must be filled out completely and returned in order to schedule a screening.

More information is available by calling the school at (724) 667-7782, extension 1100 between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
