Red Mill Kindergarten students on the first day of schoolThe East Greenbush Central School District is now enrolling kindergarten students for the 2023-24 school year. To be eligible for kindergarten in September 2023, your child must turn five years old by December 1, 2023.

Kindergarten registration packets will be mailed to all eligible families in the district database during January 2023. If your child is not currently in the district database, please call the school your child will attend to have the registration packet mailed to you. The packet will provide you with a list of all the documents you need to bring as well as all the forms you need to fill out prior to registration.

If you are not sure which school they will attend, check our District Map/Attendance Zones by Street or call the Registrar’s office at 518-207-2062.

All students who reside in the East Greenbush Central School District who are going to attend kindergarten need to register with the district. This includes students registered to receive special education services and students attending private, parochial or special placement schools. If your child is attending one of these schools and not an EGCSD school, you may contact the Registrar for your information.

Parents are encouraged to register kindergarten students during the dates/times listed below at their home school.
