Registration Information:
Registration for September 2022 UPK classes will be January 24 - February 10, 2022. A lottery will be conducted on Friday, February 11 at 10:00 a.m. to determine placement. Enrollment forms and required documentation are due by 4:00 p.m. on February 10, 2022 to be included in the lottery. Those that enroll after February 10, 2022 will be placed if and where spots are available. At this time, one half-day morning 3-year old UPK program and 3 full-day 4-year old UPK programs are planned for the 2022-2023 school year.
 
Registration is open to all 3 and 4-year old children that reside in the Gananda Central School District. To qualify for the UPK program your child must be 3 or 4-years of age by December 1, 2022. If your child will be 5-years old on or before December 1, 2022, they will not be eligible for the Gananda UPK program per the New York State Education Department. They will need to enroll in kindergarten or a private preschool program.
 
Registration packets are available below, or by visiting the District Office located in the Gananda Middle School at 1500 Dayspring Ridge, Walworth, NY 14568.
 
Class Offerings:
In the 2022-23 school year we will offer one half-day morning 3-year old UPK program and 3 full-day 4-year old UPK programs. All programs will be 5-days per week, and follow the same school calendar as the rest of the K-5 elementary school. A waitlist will be maintained if and when the programs are full. 
 
Busing:
All UPK students will be bused to school and back home with the rest of the elementary school students. (3-year old UPK students will ride a mid-day bus home.) Transportation is only provided to addresses within the Gananda CSD. Parents can drive their child to school if they wish, pick-up and drop-off procedures will be shared with you prior to the start of the school year.
