Get Your Children Registered for Preschool, Kindergarten
Byline: Suzanne Corr
District 26 next week will hold its annual Preschool Census and Kindergarten Registration for Cary families.
The census and registration will run from 4 to 7 p.m. Jan. 31 at Deer Path School, 2211 Crystal Lake Road, and at Three Oaks School, 1514 Three Oaks Road.
Both sites are open to parents from any neighborhood. The Preschool Census is for children, birth to age 5, but particularly important for 3- to 5-year-olds.
The census helps identify the number of potential new students who will attend school in the district and determine which children may need special services.
Parents will be asked to complete a questionnaire that will be reviewed by District 26 staff. In some cases, a screening may be recommended to determine and observe your child's developmental skills.
The kindergarten registration is for children who will be 5 years old on or by Sept. 1, 2002 and who will enter kindergarten in August.
You will need to bring in an official birth certificate to register. A hospital record or copy will not be accepted. …
