 NEWBURGH- If your child is registered with the Newburgh Enlarged City School District (UPK) you still need to fill out a kindergarten school choice form online.  Forms can be found at the district website through the registration department:


If your child is not yet registered but will be going to Kindergarten in a NECSD school, registration is open now.  Please register them through the district website above by May 24th. 



If you live in another school district (other than Newburgh) check with your local district registration department to determine when and how to register your child.
