Attention All Ridgewood Pre-K Kids!!

February 8 is our (second & last) town-wide Kindergarten registration day.

If you have a child who will be entering Kindergarten, go to your elementary school between the hours of 3:30 and 4:30.

Just think: You are only the second year to enjoy full day, and take it from a mom looking at colleges, getting into school will never again be this easy.

Also, the district really needs an accurate number of incoming students to plan for next year. Please make every effort to attend.

Here is the district school zone by address.

If you cannot attend, please call your school’s main office.


Age Requirement for Kindergarten
It is the School Board’s policy to admit to kindergarten in September of each year children who will be five years of age on or before October 1.
