Registration for New Students
Kindergarten Registration for the 2019-2020 school year (September 2019) for children that will be age 5 by 12-31-19 will be held at Dows Lane Elementary School during the following times. Appointments are not necessary for these three dates.

Wednesday, February 27, 2019, 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

The district welcomes new students to the Irvington School District at any time. Registration is governed by New York State law which requires residency within the Irvington School District boundaries for students (ages 5-21) to attend tuition free. For Kindergarten, children must be 5 years old by December 31. Children will not be refused admission because of race, color, creed or national origin, sex, citizenship, handicapping condition or immigration status.
We appreciate as much advance notice for registration as possible, so that we can be thoughtful in creating a student schedule and/or class placement. We are open during the summer months to accept registration packets and answer registration questions. Kindergarten pre-registration typically starts in February for the following school year and the district holds special registration sessions for Kindergarten.
The first step to registering your student is to download the registration packet of forms - links provided below. These forms are also available for pickup at the District Office at 6 Dows Lane. We request that forms are printed single sided. Please complete the forms and provide any helpful supporting information such as recent report cards. We typically request to see original documentation of age via a birth certificate, passport or other approved official documents and will make a copy to put with the registration packet, returning the original to the guardian. Proof of residency will be required and the details for required supporting documentation is contained in the registration packet materials.
Registration questions and requests for appointments to review completed registration packets should be directed to Pauline Davies at 914 591-8500 ext 5011 or Registration@Irvingtonschools.org.
Summer hours are as follows:
Monday - 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The district permits tuition paying students for non-residents after reviewing an application for admission and accepting the student. Interested parents should send a letter of interest to the Superintendent’s office or Registrar.
