Registration / Registración
Welcome to the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns!
Our mission is to empower all students to be self-directed, lifelong learners, who willingly contribute to their community and lead passionate, purposeful lives.
The Public Schools of the Tarrytowns welcomes all school-age students who reside in the district’s boundaries. To register a new student, please contact the District Registrar, Arlene Llorens-Sosa, at 914-332-6272. Appointments are required and paperwork must be completed prior to the registration appointment. The registration office is located at the District Administration Building at 200 North Broadway, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591.
For Pre-K registrations and/or questions please contact the John Paulding school directly at 914-631-5526.
Kindergarten mass registrations for the following school year are typically scheduled in January/February at the John Paulding school building. Children who turn 5 years of age by December 1 are eligible to enter kindergarten that school year. Immunizations must be complete prior to the start of kindergarten, even if a student’s 5th birthday occurs after the start of the school year. Families who are unable to attend a mass registration or who move into the district during the summer prior to the start of the school year, must enroll their children via central registration. To request a Kindergarten Registration packet, please contact the District Registrar’s office at 914-332-6272 or email the District Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit the JP homepage here for more information, or contact a JP school building staff member at 914-631-5526.
PLEASE NOTE: It typically takes 2 business days after an appointment to process a registration. During peak seasons (Summer), it could take up to 5 business days to complete the registration process after your appointment. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these times.
The following documents are required to register a student into the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns:

Proof of Residency
All new students entering the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns must provide the proper documentation to establish residency. The documents provided must indicate the student and parent/guardian’s physical address (they must reside together). A post office box is never an acceptable address for the purpose of determining residency. Please refer to the Registration Packet for a list of required residency documents.
Proof of Age
You must provide your child’s proof of age. Please see the Registration Packet for acceptable documents.
Proof of Immunizations/Physical
- Please bring the name, address, phone number and fax number of the previous school
- Most current report card
- Request for release of records will be signed by the parent/guardian during registration

Change of Address
Changes of address are by appointment with the District Registrar and require the same residency documentation as specified upon initial registration. Alternatively, you may submit by email the completed change of address form with the proofs of residence to the District Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org
McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1987 provides protections for students who are living in a shelter, car, park, bus, train, campsite, other temporary living situation, or with another person or family, due to loss of housing as a result of economic hardship or natural disaster. Students protected under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act are entitled to immediate enrollment in school, even if they do not have the documents normally required, such as proof of residency, school records, immunization records, or birth certificate. These students may also be entitled to other services. Parents or guardians who believe their child may be eligible should complete the “Student Residency Questionnaire” in the Registration Packet.
If you have any questions regarding registration or would like to set up an appointment, please contact the District Registrar at (914) 332-6272.
