Registration for eligible students planning to be enrolled for the 2017-18 kindergarten classes at the Candor Elementary School will be held Thursday, May 18; Monday, May 22; and Wednesday, May 24. Parents and guardians of children listed in the current school database will be notified of their registration date and time for their child.
For those families new to the district or if you are not sure you are on the school district census database, call the elementary school office at 659-3935. Children who will have reached their fifth birthday on or before Dec. 1, 2017 are eligible for registration.
Parents or guardians are required to bring proof of age (birth certificate), two proofs of residency, court documents pertaining to the child (order of protection, law guardian, custody arrangements), and official medical documents which indicate that their child is adequately protected against hard measles, rubella (3-day measles), mumps, polio, DTP, hepatitis B, and varicella (chicken pox).
If your child needs additional immunization shots or you are unsure of requirements, you may contact your family physician or Tioga County Health Department at 687-8600.
If your child is lactose intolerant, please provide a doctor’s note stating this. A doctor’s note is required by Child Nutrition Management Services, a division of New York State Education Department. A new note must be on file at the beginning of each school year. If a doctor’s note is not submitted, lactaid or juice cannot be provided. A copy of the doctor’s note must be provided to the Elementary School Nurse and a copy faxed to the Cafeteria Manager at (607) 659-4692.
Physical and Dental Screening forms will be available at the registration desk to be completed by your physician and dentist. If your child has a physical and/or dental appointment scheduled prior to the registration dates, you can access the required forms at the Candor Central School website, candorcs.org and bring these forms to registration.
