Kindergarten Registration

2020-2021 School Year

The Canastota Central School District is preparing for Kindergarten Registration for the 2020-21 school year. All resident students born on or before December 1, 2015 are eligible to register for Kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year. Per Board of Education Policy, children must be five years old on or before December 1, 2020 to qualify.

We will be holding Kindergarten Registration on Friday, March 6th at Peterboro Street Elementary School at 220 North Peterboro Street, with a snow day of Tuesday, March 10th. You must have an appointment to register your child for Kindergarten. Please call Peterboro Street Elementary, at 697-2027 to set up an appointment. Registration must be done in person by the resident parent or legal guardian who needs photo ID. Please note that your child does not need to accompany you to registration.

Registration packets should be obtained prior to Kindergarten Registration. Please call our District Registrar, Amanda Snyder, at 697-6326. Packets can be mailed or picked up in the main office at Peterboro Street Elementary School. Registration information may also be downloaded using the link to the right. Registration packets will be sent home with current Pre-K students on February 3rd. 

Please register your child on March 6th so we can have all paperwork processed before school begins in September. Kindergarten Screening appointments will be made at Kindergarten Registration, so please bring calendars with you. Kindergarten Screening will take place May 4th – 8th.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Jennifer L. Carnahan, Principal, at Peterboro Street Elementary School at 697-2027.

Welcome to the Class of 2033!
