PURSUING EXCELLENCE ONE STUDENT AT A TIME
CENTRAL REGISTRATION | INFORMATION AND FORMS
For preschool students at Gaffney or Roosevelt Early Learning Center, you do not need to complete any forms or provide any further information for kindergarten registration. Your preschooler is already enrolled in the New Britain Public Schools. Your child will be enrolled in your neighborhood school based on your address. Children with an Individualized Education Plan to receive special services at a specific school will be enrolled according to their IEP.
Your child must have a physical examination within the year before Kindergarten, with proof of all immunizations required for your child's age. The school nurse at your child's preschool will send the medical forms we have on file to the kindergarten school. Parents must be sure the school nurse has the up-to-date medical forms needed for kindergarten. If you do not do so before the end of school in June, you will have to bring the medical forms to Central Registration.
If you have questions about preschool registration or programs, please contact Lucy Flores at (860) 612-3315
All children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall are required by state law to have a current physical examination, updated immunizations, and a negative TB screening or negative TB test (PPD or chest x-ray). Blue physical form must be completed by both the parent/guardian and the child’s medical provider. The physical must have been done on or after July 1, 2019.
The original blue form is turned in either when you register your child for kindergarten at Central Registration OR, if your child is already attending the New Britain Public School pre-school program, to your child’s pre-school nurse. The yellow pre-school (pre-K) physical form is not acceptable for kindergarten.
The first page of the blue form is for the parent/guardian to complete, date, and sign. The immunization requirements for kindergarten admission are listed on the blue form, just below the immunization record on page 3.
If your child had a physical exam on or after July 1, 2019, another physical exam is not required. Fill out Part I of the blue medical form and bring the blue medical form to your child’s medical provider and ask them to fi ll it out. The blue medical form must be completed by your child’s medical provider.
Children who do not have completed immunization and physical forms on file in the nurse’s office will not be allowed to enter the kindergarten classroom in the fall. Please do not wait until the first day of school to bring these forms to the school nurse.
