Bay Schools kindergarten information meeting in March

Bay Village parents of children who will be five years of age on or before Sept. 30, 2014 are invited to attend a Bay Village Kindergarten Information Meeting on Wednesday, March 5, 7 p.m., at Normandy Elementary School, 26920 Normandy Road in Bay Village. Only parents should attend, due to limited space.

The kindergarten registration packet will be distributed at this meeting. In addition to an overview of kindergarten and kindergarten readiness, there will be information tables for those with questions regarding daycare, kindergarten readiness, speech therapy, early entrance and volunteer opportunities.

Kindergarten Registration

Registration for students who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of 2014 will take place Tuesday through Thursday, March 11, 12 and 13, at Normandy Elementary School. Parents should bring the completed registration forms at the time of registration. Parents will need to provide the child’s birth certificate (baptismal certificates cannot be accepted), an updated record of the child’s immunizations, two forms of proof of residency in Bay Village (lease agreement, purchase agreement, telephone or utility bill), and a copy of custody papers if the child is not living with both natural parents.

To evenly distribute the numbers registering and to avoid long lines, the district requests that the parents register according to the following schedule:

  • Last names beginning A-H on Tuesday, March 11
  • Last names beginning I-P on Wednesday, March 12
  • Last names beginning Q-Z on Thursday, March 13.

Registration on each day will be taken from 8:45-10:45 a.m. and from 12:20-2:20 p.m. Those who are unable to come during the assigned day may come on any of the other three registration days. In addition, families who cannot register their children during the daytime hours may register on Wednesday, March 12, from 6:30-8 p.m.

As announced previously, first-round All-Day Kindergarten applications are due by the end of the school day Tuesday, January 21. All-Day Kindergarten spots are assigned on a space-available, first-come, first-served basis. Applications can be found on Normandy Elementary's website at
