Students new to the Alden Central School District should register as soon as possible. In an effort to make things more consistent and streamlined, parents registering their children for the first time will no longer need to register at individual buildings; the Central Registrar's office will handle all paperwork. Call the Central Registrar with any questions regarding the registration process.
Please Note:A completed registration form alone does not constitute registration. A completed packet must be received along with the documentation outlined above.Prior to starting school the medical information MUST be turned in. The school nurse will contact the parent/guardian if there is anything medically that needs to be updated or if there's a health question.Please refer to the Immunization Requirements for School Entrance/Attendance file in order to see if your child meets the Department of Health requirements.
Reminder - Parents/Guardians please bring a government issued ID with you when registering your child/children in order to be admitted into the building.
