Good Morning,

No School tomorrow.  

Do you have a kindergarten child or first grader new to Chichester Central School entering in the fall of 2016 and are unsure of what to do?  Kindergarten/New Grade 1 registration is ongoing until April 22nd.  Parents/Guardians must stop by Chichester Central School to pick up a registration packet and will need to return the completed package in person to school by April 22nd.  Parents will be asked to supply a copy of their child’s birth certificate & immunizations, parents/guardians driver’s license, and proof of residency in Chichester.  The age requirements for entry is age 5 (kindergarten) and age 6 (grade 1) by September 30.  School hours for registration pick up and drop off are between 7:30-3:15, Monday-Friday.
Children will go through a screening process in May that will allow the kindergarten committee to assess abilities so that the morning & afternoon classes will be evenly balanced.  Transportation is provided to school in the morning and to home at 2:40 (there is no mid-day transportation).  The New Morning Program does provide an on-site before school and after 2:40 care program for a minimal cost.  Please call the office @ 798-5651 for more information.


Baseball will practice today (Mon) and Wed from 5:00 - 6:30.
