Pre-K & K Registration

When school offers are given in the Spring, we will be asking families to accept or decline their offer in Myschools.

Families can also respond to offers by contacting the school directly at our email, mainoffice@ps896.org or by calling the Office of Student Enrollment at 718-935-2009.

Our school staff will be reaching out to confirm your acceptance and obtain an email. Due to ongoing school closures the Spring pre registration process will occur virtually. 

Given the circumstances, we are all working together to be flexible and accommodating with families during this unprecedented time. To that end, there will be no pre-registration deadline for Kindergarten registration completion.   We thank you for your patience and understanding.
