Registering Students for Rush-Henrietta
Please see below for information regarding K-12 registration. For UPK registration information, please click here.
To register a child attending a private or parochial school, please contact the district registrar at (585) 359-7957 or LBeckelhymer@rhnet.org, as the process is different.
It is our desire that all school-age children living in the Rush-Henrietta Central School District are registered in time to attend school in September. It is important for us to know how many students will be enrolled on the first day of school. Appropriate supplies and textbooks, equitable classroom sizes and assignments, and bus schedules must be created. We must be fully prepared. Please register as early as possible. If the grade at your child's home school is at capacity at the time of registration, your child will be assigned to another elementary school for the school year. Students entering kindergarten in September 2023, must be 5 years old on or before Dec. 1, 2023. Students new to the district, those who have moved or left the district and wish to return, and those who have attended a private school, including kindergarten, must register.

Documents Needed to Register Your Student for School
In order to register, you will be required to provide the following:
1. Documentation of district residency:
A mortgage or deed (or tax bill) document to a house or a lease for an apartment, in the parent/guardian names, is required. If your name, as parent or guardian, is not on the mortgage or lease, let the district registrar know when you call for an appointment. She can provide you with a required Shared Housing Affidavit and detailed information.
You may also click here to download a PDF of the Shared Housing Affidavit that you may print.
2. Documentation of age. Acceptable forms of documentation include:
A birth certificate (original or certified transcript, including a foreign birth certificate) OR baptismal record.
If neither of these is available, other evidence may be considered, if it has been in existence for at least two years.
3. Record of immunizations and a health certificate from a licensed physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner. This may be faxed to (585) 359-7959.
4. If applicable, a copy of a judicial custody order or court-ordered guardianship papers. Please contact the district registrar with any questions regarding the required documentation.
Students will not be registered without the necessary paperwork.
