• New Student Registration

    The office is located in the Pupil Personnel Service Offices in the District Office Building located at Lenape Elementary School, 1 Eugene L. Brown Drive New Paltz, New York.

     

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, New Paltz school buildings are currently closed. In an effort to continue registering students for the 2020/2021 school year, we are moving to remote registration. Please email the completed registration materials and required documents to the Central Registrar, Jackie Tiano - jtiano@newpaltz.k12.ny.us. If you are unable to complete the registration remotely, please call 845-256-4040 and leave a message with your name and telephone number. An appointment can be scheduled for you to register your child(ren). Please allow 24 hours for Central Registration to return your call during the school closure.
