Universal Pre-Kindergarten Registration

East Moriches School District is pleased to work in cooperation with SCOPE Education Services to run a Universal Pre-Kindergarten program for a limited number of East Moriches children who will turn 4 on or before December 1st of each school year.

Currently, there is no cost to attend the program. Each year the district holds a lottery to enroll the children. In mid-January, the district puts the lottery application on its website. Each interested family must complete the lottery application and forward it to the Registrar’s office prior to the deadline stated on the application. Families do not need to be present to participate in the lottery. The lottery is typically held in May as documented on the lottery application.

Once the lottery is held, selected families will receive a registration packet in the mail that also includes a preference sheet for AM or PM session. The district proceeds to enroll our students in number order as picked in the lottery.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our UPK program or to make an appointment to register your child, please call Jackie Franke at 631-878-0162, ext. 515 or email at jfranke@emoschools.org. Please click for a copy of the UPK Lottery Application.
