Kindergarten Registration

Online Pre-Registration for 2019-2020

The Westwood Regional School District will begin online Kindergarten pre-registration for 2019-2020 on Monday, December 3, 2018. 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, 2019 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, 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.

Parent/guardian orientations will be held at each elementary school on June 4 at 1:30 p.m. in the respective schools.

Separate screenings will be held on the following dates:

June 10-Washington

June 11-George

June 12-Brookside

June 13-Berkeley

The fundamental reason for completing these screenings is to determine school readiness, to determine programming, and also to assist in creating equitable kindergarten classes.
