Kindergarten Registration

Online Kindergarten Pre-Registration for 2017-2018

The Westwood Regional School District began online Kindergarten pre-registration for 2017-2018 on Thursday, December 1. The online registration is a pre-registration only, and students will not be considered enrolled until parents/ guardians submit the required information during the in-person registration process on the January dates noted below.

A child residing in the Borough of Westwood or Township of Washington who will be five (5) years old on or before October 1, 2017 is eligible to enter Kindergarten. There are no exceptions to that date.

The district will make every effort to place students in their “neighborhood” schools; however, due to possible over-enrollment, the district cannot guarantee at which district school—Berkeley, Brookside, George, Washington—your child will be placed. Late registrants especially run the risk of not being placed at the neighborhood school. School placement letters are sent to parents/guardians mid-May.
