Registration

Pre-Kindergarten Admissions 2017-18

Round 1 offers for families who applied to Pre-K are now available.  All families who were offered a placement at PS 29 must pre-register by the May 9th deadline.  Pre-registration is by appointment only, please follow this link to make an appointment for Pre-K pre-registration http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0c4ca9a62fa20-prek

If you were placed on the wait list for PS 29, we will NOT have any information regarding any movement of the wait list until after the May 9th deadline.  Please keep in mind that all the offers that were made at PS 29 were to zoned siblings, so it is unlikely that the wait list will have any movement.  NYC DOE Enrollment makes these decisions.  These decisions are completely out of PS 29’s hands.

If you wish to apply to Round 2 of the Pre-K application, please visit the NYC Department of Education Pre-K page.

Kindergarten Admissions 2017-18

**WAITLIST INFORMATION**  We unfortunately have not had any movement on our wait list, it seems as if most families who were offered a placement at PS 29 for the 2017-18 school year have accepted their offer.  As of April 25th, 2017 there are NO PLANS of adding a “new Kindergarten class” or adding “trailers” to the playground to house the overflow of families, these are clearly rumors with no truth behind them. We wish we had better news but these decisions are made by the DOE. 

Kindergarten offer letters were sent to all families who submitted their application by the January 13 deadline. If you missed the January 13 deadline but submitted a late application, you will get an offer by mid-June. Your offer letter lists the school where your child will go to kindergarten.

The deadline to accept your offer was April 7. If you missed the pre-registration deadline, contact the school where your child got an offer. Depending on seat availability, you will be able to pre-register or join the school’s waitlist.

Your offer letter also includes the schools where your child is waitlisted. You are automatically added to the waitlist for all schools that you ranked higher on your application than the school where your child got an offer. You don’t need to take any action on your waitlist schools until they contact you—schools contact waitlisted families directly if they can offer you a seat.

Please note that PS 29 is a zoned school and only takes zoned students. If you are not sure whether you live in our zone, the quickest way to find out is to visit this link http://schools.nyc.gov/ChoicesEnrollment/FindZonedSchool.htm You can also call the school at 718-330-9277

We are extremely conscientious and strict about address verification. Your zoned school is where your child’s primary residence is. It is not an apartment you own or rent but do not reside in at the time of application/registration or your place of employment. It is not a temporary apartment you have rented for a few months with the intention of registering your child at PS 29. These are all prohibited by Chancellor’s Regulations. We are scrupulous in address verification due to the fact that over the last few years we have had many more applicants than seats available and we must retain the integrity of the process for legitimately zoned families. We retain the right to do address investigations and abide by the results of those investigations.
