enrolling in school late AwkwardTurtle 34 kids; Syracuse, NY, United States 2085 posts

typing 1 handed while nursing.. bare with me :)



My soon to be 5 yr old did the kindergarten screening at the school we are zoned for. I have yet to drop off the enrollment packet and forms.. We are moving in august to a different district, and school starts in septemer. Im going to go put the deposit on the place tomorrow. to enroll you need proof of residency and a bill in your name, ect..which I wont have till literally right before school starts.. Should I just contact the new school and tell them my situation and see what they say? We're moving for sure so I didnt want to enroll in the current zoned school unless "transferring" is the only way to ensure he starts at school on time.



Guess what im asking is how late is to late? Moving right before school starts wont prevent him for getting to start school right? Hes my first, so im new at this school stuff, thanks!!

Call and ask but technically they can't refuse a child :? But they may wanna know for numbers.

Call and ask the new school. I went through a similar situation last year, moving part way through the school year. My water company was nice enough to mail me something stating I was a customer with our address within a few days of moving. So DS only missed a day or two of school. You might also be able to print something from one of your utilities websites maybe.

I just moved and had to re-register my son for school. For proof of recidency this late in registration all that is required is either the escrow papers or the signed lease. The second proof of residency can be turned in after school starts.



Just make sure you get his medical and dental check ups done ASAP. Here, our dental records had to be turned in already.

Im just hoping its not a big scramble to get him in. I just wasnt sure if starting on day 1 with everyone else was going to happen.

My son's birthday is August 14th and he turns five. He just barely made the cut off, so we're going to wait a year to enroll him to let him mature a little more.

Yikes. Im having a hard time finding a dentist to take my insurance. They all seem to only take one or two types and its never BCBS :/ And with my newb its hard getting phone calls done.

Does your insurance have a website that you can pick a dentist from? Or can you call and get a list emailed to you? That's how I picked my dentist.

Gah- yeah I should probably do that :oops:



I almost wish I was still pregnant so I could get shit done! I swear my newb knows when I so much as think about doing something when she naps. At that moment she vows to never sleep again :evil:
