Kindergarten screening appointments at SC & SE currently being scheduled

on July 10, 2020

Kindergarten screenings were postponed in the spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic and school closures. Sapphire Elementary and Smith Clove Elementary are in the process of scheduling kindergarten screening appointments during July for incoming 2020-2021 students. Parents or guardians who do not have a kindergarten screening appointment for their child should contact the Sapphire main office at 845-460-6500 or the Smith Clove main office at 845-460-6300 to schedule an appointment. Appointments will run for approximately 20 minutes per student.

In order to ensure that we are able to adhere to social distancing recommendations, please arrive promptly for the confirmed screening appointment.

Please note that the following materials must be brought to the kindergarten screening in order for a child to be screened:

  • Proof of residency (a lease, deed, or rental agreement and a utility bill; both are required)
  • Birth certificate documentation
  • Proof of immunizations and most recent physical examination

Due to social distancing mandates, only one parent/guardian may attend the screening with the student during the assigned time.  Siblings or any other family members who are not being screened for kindergarten will not be able to attend the screening or enter the building.

As recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Orange County Department of Health, our staff will be wearing masks during the kindergarten screening. The district asks that parents and children also wear masks when entering and leaving the building.

Thank you to our families for your flexibility and understanding as we navigate this new way of conducting the screening process.  We are very excited to welcome our newest M-W students!  Please let us know if you have any questions.
