FAYETTE – Fayette parents who are planning to enroll their child in kindergarten for the 2005-2006 school year at Fayette Central School will need to register their child between 8 a.m. and noon Friday, May 6, at the school.

To be eligible to start school this fall, a child must be 5 on or before Oct. 15. Parents should call the school at 685-4770 to schedule an appointment to register their child. At the time of registration, parents will need to bring the following: The child to be registered, an official birth certificate, current immunization records, child’s Social Security care, proof of residency and custody document (if necessary.)

It is required by state law that all children be screened prior to beginning public school. During the registration process, the child will receive a vision, speech, language, cognitive, motor and hearing screening. The procedures help the school identify children who may need additional help in school.

The school is also planning for next year’s prekindergarten program and needs to find out how many children age 4 living in Fayette are eligible to attend in the fall. Those who have any children in their home or know of any friends and neighbors who have a child that will be 4 before Oct. 15 should call the school as soon as possible.
