Late Kindergarten Registration

Late Kindergarten registration for the 2019-2020 School Year Has Begun!

The Westwood Regional School District held regular Kindergarten registration from January 14 - February 1, 2019. All registrations initiated after that time period are considered "late registrations."

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. There is no busing to our elementary schools.

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 11-Washington

June 12-George

June 13-Brookside

June 14-Berkeley
