Kindergarten Registration     
2022-2023 School Year

Dear Families,
Forest Elementary is excited to announce that we are beginning our kindergarten registration process for the 2022-2023 school year! 
If your child will be 5 years old by December 1st, your child is eligible to attend kindergarten at Forest Elementary this upcoming Fall.  Our kindergarten registration will occur online.  This will require families to complete and submit required documentation through our designated registration link.  Please gather all of the information you need before starting the process. 
Step 1-  Please visit the Forest Elementary Kindergarten Registration Link
Step 2 – Complete the required components of the registration document. 
Step 3 - You will need to upload the following documentation on the registration link:
a.)     Proof of Residency (2 proofs) with current date- the list of acceptable documents will be listed on the registration link. Examples are:  lease agreement, mortgage statement, property tax bill, utility bill, driver’s license, homeowners or renters insurance, medical insurance, Official Post Office Confirmation Letter
If you are living with another family, we would need a notarized letter from the homeowner stating this along with 2 proofs of residency from the homeowner and 2 proofs from the parent registering.  
b.)    Immunizations - that your child has received to date, signed or stamped from their physician.  Our school nurse will follow up to verify that all required immunizations have been completed prior to the start of the school year.  
c.)     Your Child’s Birth Certificate
d.)   Custody Paperwork (if applicable) :  A copy of custody paperwork is requested if parents do not live at the same address.  If there are no custody papers, we would need a notarized letter(s) signed by each parent that outlines the visitation schedule and defines who is the residential parent for educational purposes and giving the residential parent permission to register.
Step 4-  Submit your registration documentation.  This will be reviewed and you will be provided with feedback if additional documentation is still needed.  Once completed, you will receive an email from us confirming this.  
Please feel free to contact our office with any questions regarding custody or if living with another family.
Once your child is registered for kindergarten, you will be contacted at a later date so that we may set up a kindergarten screening session with your child and one of our teachers.    In order to ensure that this can be accomplished prior to the end of the school year, we ask that you please complete your online kindergarten registration by March 31, 2022.  This screening is usually done in May/June. 
Before the start of the school year, our Health Office will require a copy of your child’s physical, dated 9/1/2021 or after.   A dental certificate is also requested, although not required.  You may email this at any time or fax to 716-626-9819.  
If you have questions regarding the kindergarten registration process, please contact Mrs. Hooper in the Forest Main Office at or call (716) 626-9801.
If you have questions regarding our kindergarten program please call Mr. Wing at or (716) 626-9810.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!
