New Milford Public Schools invites parents of incoming kindergartners to visit their respective elementary schools to begin the registration process for next school year.

Any child who will be 5 on or before Dec. 31 is eligible for enrollment in kindergarten for the 2020-21 year.

Parents/guardians should bring the child’s birth certificate, three proofs of residency (utility bill, real estate tax bill, copy of mortgage, deed or rental agreement, bank statement, driver’s license with current address), personal identification and all completed registration forms.

Registration forms can be completed before registration dates and can found online by going to www.newmilfordps.org and clicking on the blue “Kindergarten Registration” box (the upper right of the page).

Hard copies of the forms can be picked up at the New Milford Youth Agency at the John Pettibone Community Center, as well as at Hill and Plain Elementary School Feb. 3 from 4 to 6:30 p.m.

Elementary school assignments are determined by street.
