Important Notes About PreSchool Registration

Please do not register your preschool student unless you have been notified that your child has been accepted into the program.

Families of children who do not require special education services that would like their child to attend the Wethersfield Public School Preschool program as a peer playmate must enter a lottery. This lottery is held in the spring prior to the upcoming school year. Typically, 18 peer playmates will be selected to participate in the prek 3 program. Once a child is accepted into the program, he/she do not have to reenter the lottery for the following school year for the prek 4 program. A prek 4 lottery will only be held if openings are available for the upcoming school year. The Pre K lottery ends on March 11th.

Lottery Process

  1. Information on becoming a Peer Playmate is publicized on the district website and in local newspapers in December/January.

  2. Children must turn 3 by October 1st of the upcoming school year in order to apply to participate in the lottery.

  3. Families who would like their child to be considered for the peer playmate program need to complete an application by specified deadline. Families should call to get an application from the pupil services office (860-571-8141) or by clicking here.

  4. Families that submit the completed application will be invited to bring their child to a peer playmate screening. Observational information will be gathered during a 30-45 minute screening. Focus areas during this screening include: personal social, communication, cognitive and motor skills.

  5. Students who demonstrate age appropriate skills in the above stated areas will be placed into the second phase of the lottery. This will consist of blind selection of student names. Children not selected will be placed on a waiting list. Please note that peer playmates must be toilet trained prior to start of school.

Important Notes About Kindergarten Registration

Any child 5 years old on or before January 1, 2023 is eligible for the kindergarten registration for the school year 2022-2023.

Kindergarten registration begins on February 1st each year. Please register your kindergarten student prior to May 1st. School-based orientations for parents are scheduled in April (Please contact your elementary school for more information). This orientation provides parents the opportunity to meet staff and learn more about the kindergarten program and the school.

Story Time, a school visit for the new kindergarten students, will occur in May. Parents will receive information regarding Story Time, once their child has been registered.

If you plan to withhold your child from kindergarten for the school year, Connecticut State Law 98-243 requires that you personally appear at the elementary school and sign a document indicating that your child will be held out for the year. The purpose of the legislation is not to interfere with the rights of parents but to provide information to assist in making an informed decision.

School Health Services

If you wish to speak with the school nurses, please call the school nurse at the school your child will attend.

Each Wethersfield School is staffed by a professional registered nurse who oversees the school health program. The school nurse works as a liaison with other school personnel, families, and the community regarding the health and well being of the students.

The following is a partial list of the services provided on a routine basis.

  • Screenings:

  • Hearing and Impedance Testing

  • Vision Testing

  • Scoliosis

  • Nursing assessment of student illness or injury occurring during school hours.

  • Prevention of disease transmission.

  • Administration of medication and provision of medical treatments, if necessary, during school hours.

  • Health Education

  • Advocacy for the health needs of children

Children Requiring Medication

Children who require medication in school must have on file with the school nurse a written order from their physician and written permission from a parent or guardian. The parent must supply the medication. These forms may also be obtained from the school nurse.
