Midlakes Elementary School continues to welcome incoming kindergartners and students for an expanded Universal Pre-Kindergarten program for the anticipated start of the 2020-2021 school year. Families must first complete an online pre-registration form.
Children turning five years old by December 1 of this year are eligible to enroll in kindergarten. Students attending the Extra Step program in 2019-2020 do not need to register. Children in the UPK program during the 2019-2020 school year must register in advance for kindergarten.
Families may use the visitor parking lot and should call (315) 548-6700 upon arrival. A member of the school’s office staff will meet visitors at Door ‘A’ to exchange packets. Visitors must wear a face-covering during this time.
Parent Survey Midlakes Elementary School also wants to get additional information from those who know incoming kindergartners the best. The school is asking parents to complete a brief online survey. This information will help in placing children in their kindergarten classroom.
Extra Step Program Midlakes also offers a full-day program for young children who would benefit from additional development time before entering kindergarten. The program offers a blend of pre-school and kindergarten curriculum and focuses on readiness skills, language development, and social skill development.
Families can learn more about the Extra Step program in a video posted below. Students completing the yearlong program will be able to attend kindergarten the following year.
