Rising 5K Students Currently Enrolled in York 1 Schools

  • For Current 4K Students Only: You may complete the 2019-2020 Annual Registration for Kindergarten at the carnival by providing a new Proof of Residency. No additional appointment or screening will be necessary.

    **Valid proofs of residency include the most recent copy of one of the following and must show the address and the name of the parent/guardian:

    Electric, gas, or water utility bill;

    Tax notice on real property (automotive taxes are not valid);

    Copy of closing statement on home purchase; or

    Signed, dated lease agreement from rental company, mobile home park, or similar agent (rent payment receipts are not valid).

    Electronic copies of the above proofs of residency are acceptable if they can be downloaded to a file.

    If a child and his/her parent/guardian live in a residence where the above documents are in someone else’s name (e.g. grandmother’s name), that individual should accompany the parent/legal guardian to the carnival with a valid proof of residence and sign, along with the parent/guardian, an official Verification of Residence (VOR) form. A public notary will be on site for completion of the VOR process. As parent/guardian, you will also need to provide evidence that you reside in the same residence as noted on the VOR. This evidence may include: voter registration cards, utility bills, bank statements, driver’s license, or other governmental documents showing the address.

     

    Annual Registration for all other students will be completed online beginning in July.
