Attention Parents/Guardians of children in grades PreK-8 registering new students:
All students initially enrolling within the Wanaque Public School District will be required to provide evidence of the following:
- Birth certificate and/or passport;
- Record of immunization against communicable diseases;
- Proof of Residency in the form of an original telephone bill, gas and electric bill, water bill, Wanaque Borough tax bill, mortgage and/or rent statement may be required.
Upon review of the aforementioned data, a registration form will be completed which will be signed by the custodial parent/guardian.
Parents will be asked to complete emergency notification cards, lunch forms, and release forms. The release form allows the district to request all past records from the child's former district to be forwarded to the school.
As per Board of Education policy, in cases involving student admission to kindergarten, a child must reach his/her fifth birthday by October 1st of the school year.
All new students entering the district are required by New Jersey law to have a physical examination by their doctor within 30 days of enrollment. If there is a financial concern preventing a parent or guardian from obtaining the required physical examination, please contact the school nurse who will arrange for the school physician to conduct the examination. No student will be permitted to attend school in the Wanaque Public Schools beyond 30 days without completion of the physical evaluation form. Parents or guardians will also be asked to complete a health checklist.
Below you will find most of the forms that need to be completed for the registration of a new student. Please note that numbers 6, 7 and 8 only apply to Kindergarten registrations, 9 and 10 only apply to Preschools registration*. There is a link to a pre-registration form online to complete.
