At In-Person Registration parents must present four Proofs of Residency, as well as the child’s raised seal birth certificate, and several other documents. Copies will be made of all original documents. A list of necessary documents and forms can be found on-line during the registration process.

The purpose of the In-Person Registration appointment is to check documentation and confirm the child’s registration information. Parents should not expect to meet teachers or receive a tour of the school at that time.

Meeting teachers and touring the school will take place during the school’s Kindergarten Screening appointment.

In order for students to attend Kindergarten Screening, all On-Line Registration and In-Person Registration must be completed by Friday, February 8.

District-wide Kindergarten Screening will be held for five days at each of the district’s five elementary schools. Montville elementary school Kindergarten Screenings are scheduled from mid-April to late-May.

At Kindergarten Screening children will complete a series of activities to provide teachers with an indication of the developmental level of each child. The screening lasts about one hour. Each child has his or her picture taken, meets each of the kindergarten teachers, speaks with the teachers, and does a few simple tasks. No preparation is necessary. Kindergarten Screening is not a test.

Kindergarten Screening dates are scheduled for several days at each of Montville Township’s five public elementary schools. Hilldale Elementary School Kindergarten Screening will be held April 22-26. Cedar Hill Elementary School will be May 6-10.  Valley View and Woodmont Elementary Kindergarten Screenings will be held May 13-17.
