UPK Registration Information

Frank Knight School - Porter Street view


Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Seneca Falls Central School District is committed to providing a high quality Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) program for the 2023-2024 school year. Our UPK program is designed to provide an enriching and developmentally appropriate experience for four year old students. Below is important information about our program:

  • Location and Time: Frank Knight School during normal school hours

  • Calendar: Follows the Frank Knight School calendar

  • Meals: Breakfast and lunch are offered at a cost. Families are encouraged to complete a Free/Reduced Lunch Application.  

  • Program cost: There is no cost to participate.

  • Transportation: Provided for children who are 4 years old at the start of the school year or after turning 4 years old

Eligible children are defined as those who live in the boundaries of the Seneca Falls Central School District and will be 4 years old on or before December 1, 2023. If your child is eligible for kindergarten (four years old and turning 5 by December 1, 2023), they are not eligible to attend UPK.

Our program consists of a total of 36 slots for two UPK classrooms (18 in each classroom). We will use a lottery to draw for the 36 available slots. Students not drawn will be added to a waitlist. Please note that lottery results will not be shared over the phone. We will notify families by mail.

The following dates and deadlines are very important:

  • February 10: Registration Packets are available online, or can be picked up at the District Office located at 2 Butler Ave., or by calling (315) 568-5818 to have a registration packet mailed to you. 

  • March 24: Registration Packet deadline! All completed packets are due to the District Office. Registration Packets received after March 24 will automatically be added to the end of the waitlist.

  • March 31: Lottery Drawing

  • April 10-14: Notification letters are mailed to students who receive a slot and to those on the waitlist.

 If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Clendenen at 315-568-5500 Ext. 3100.
