Roxbury, NJ (December 19, 2018) — Roxbury Township Public Schools, a K-12 school district preparing the children of today for tomorrow, has set its Kindergarten registration dates for the 2019/2020 school year. Children must be five years old on or before October 1, 2019 to participate. 

Roxbury Township Public Schools offers a full-day kindergarten program designed to develop knowledge and skills in the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive areas. Our goal is to help children develop skills and strategies that will help them learn and establish a foundation for lifelong success in education. The program allows more time for students to address curriculum in depth and allows teachers to provide additional activities in learning. 

To register for Kindergarten, parents must bring their child’s original birth certificate, a record of immunizations, and three proofs of residency at the time of registration. To access more details, visit www.roxbury.org/KindergartenRegistration

Parents must make an appointment at their home school to register their child. If the home school is unknown, please contact the Transportation Department at 973-584-6756 and based on your address, they can let you know what school your child should be attending.
