As we look ahead to the 2023-24 school year, Weedsport Central School District will be offering full-day pre-kindergarten beginning in September of 2023. The change comes as the district has been awarded funding from the state to bolster its pre-kindergarten program, as explained in the article found here. The district is currently planning this transition as we await for final confirmation from the state comptroller, and families will hear more about this new offering in the coming months.
Right now, we are looking to put together a list of students who will be entering pre-kindergarten and kindergarten next school year. Families are asked to fill out the intent form found at this link. The form is also found at the bottom of this page. This is not registration. The official registration packet will come out after March 17, 2023, when this intent form will close. At this point we are compiling a list to help with planning for the next school year.
To enter pre-kindergarten, a child must turn 4 on or before December 1, 2023 and to enter kindergarten, a child must turn 5 on or before December 1, 2023. Please respond before March 17, 2023.
Please feel free to forward the form link to any family that lives in the Weedsport School District and has a child who can attend pre-kindergarten or kindergarten next year.
