Universal Pre-KThe North Syracuse Central School District continues to accept registrations for its Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) program. The District is offering both full-day and half-day options. To be eligible for the District's UPK program, children must live in the North Syracuse Central School District and be four years old on or before December 1, 2021.
UPK registrations are being accepted by email (to firstname.lastname@example.org) or by mail to NSCSD, Attn: UPK, 5355 West Taft Rd., North Syracuse, NY 13212. Additionally completed registrations can be dropped off at the District Office Building (5355 W. Taft Rd., N. Syracuse). In the event that a parent/guardian must come into the Registration Office, we request only 1 person be in attendance to minimize crowds.
