Information for Kindergarten Registration

  • All families who live within the Amherst Central School District boundaries with a child who turns five by Dec. 1, 2020 are eligible to register their child for kindergarten at Smallwood Drive or Windermere Boulevard Elementary Schools.

    Originally scheduled for March 2020, letters will be mailed to parents sometime this spring with details about how to register. If you have a child who turns five by Dec. 1, 2020, reside in the district and have not yet been contacted, please call Smallwood Elementary at 362-2192 or Windermere Elementary at 362-4182 for further information.

    Registration packets will be distributed during the Kindergarten Orientation for all families wishing to register for kindergarten. Due to school closure these orientation dates are being rescheduled for the future and families will be notified. The orientation session will be for parents only, attendance is highly encouraged.

    Kindergarten screening for students will be held at Smallwood Drive Elementary School on May 19 and at Windermere Boulevard Elementary School on May 20. Parents will be assigned a time to bring their child to screening. All the registration documents are due at this time.

    If you are unsure whether your residence falls within the district boundaries, check the location of your residence using the Street Guides for Elementary Schools or call either elementary school.
