      Overview of the Registration Process

      Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) Registration for Students who were selected in the lottery

      If you entered the UPK lottery and received a letter that your child was randomly selected for a seat in the UPK program, you will use our online registration application (link above) to accept the seat and formally register your student for UPK with the required documents.  The selection letter you receive will contain more detailed instructions and a deadline by which you must either accept or decline the seat.

      UPK Information

      UPK is for students who will be 4 on or before 12/1/2022 (born between 12/2/2017 and 12/1/2018).  Shenendehowa partners with approved centers in our district to provide a UPK program for eligible 4-year-old district children at no cost to families through a state funded grant.  Seats at each location are filled through a lottery process.  To be in the selection pool, a fully completed lottery entry must be received by May 11, 2022.  The lottery selection will occur on May 18, 2022, and selected families will be notified by mail following this date.  A wait list letter will be sent to those not selected.  For more information regarding UPK, please see our flyer on Frequently Asked Questions about UPK.
