Kindergarten Registration 2023-2024

  • All registration is done via the Genesis Registration Portal. The registration portal will open on January 23, 2023. We ask that all families register their children by February 28, 2023, in order to efficiently plan for classes in September.

    Regarding medical paperwork, please submit the medical history form (completed by parent) and the most recent physical and immunizations from the Dr. You can update medical information through the end of the summer. Please don't wait to register your child based on pending medical updates, appointments, etc.

    Note to current families: the Genesis registration portal is separate from the Parent Portal.  You must use the registration portal to register any children entering the district for the first time.

    If you have any questions, please email Becci Marin: rmarin@cwcboe.org or call 973-228-6979 ext. 3044.
