    NOTE: The following information is what you need to know during the COVID-19 period.
    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS LOCATION CHANGES WILL BE IN EFFECT STARTING JULY 22.


    ALL documentation and paperwork is to be submitted prior to placement.

    Important family/child information is a necessary part of registration. There are two options available for submitting required paperwork. If you have already submitted paperwork to your zoned school, you will only need to scan/bring the documents you are missing, if any. 

    Option 1: (Preferred Option)
    Scan and Email one document with copies of the required documents. 
    Specifications of the Email:

    • Only one document should be sent as an attachment to an email. The one document should have separate scanned documents saved to separate pages. For example: Page 1-Birth certificate, Page 2-Proof of Income, Page 3-Immunization, etc.
    • Please save this one document and name it using the following: "childslastnamefirstnameschoolnamePREKDOCUMENTS"
    • In the subject line of the email please type in: "childslastnamefirstnameschoolnamePREKDOCS"
    • Please email to your school's Database Specialist (A list of Database Specialists is located on our website's menu bar to the left)
      If any of the copies are not legible or clear, you will be contacted to re-scan or bring clear copies to OSRPP.

    Option 2:

    Beginning on JULY 22 you may drop off clear and legible copies of required documents to your child's ZONED SCHOOL. The Office of School Readiness and Prekindergarten Programs will be accepting previously requested documents on designated drop-off days. ALL NEW FAMILIES WHO HAVE NOT SUBMITTED DOCUMENTS WILL NEED TO SCAN OR DROP-OFF AT THE ZONED SCHOOL.
