Universal Pre Kindergarten (UPK)
Welcome to UPK at Maine-Endwell!
Dear UPK Parents,
Maine-Endwell has made it a priority to provide quality education to our youngest Spartans. The district received funding that allowed full day UPK in several locations in our district. We are hopeful that the same level, or an increase of funding will be awarded for the 2023-24 school year. To participate in the UPK program, the child must turn 4 years old on or before December 1, 2023.
Selection for the UPK program is done by the lottery system and although you can rank your preferences of location and time, there is no guarantee that your child will be selected or assigned to your preferred location/time slot. In addition, the district does not provide transportation to any of the UPK locations, so transportation to and from the program is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
Our online lottery registration portal is now open and will remain open for approximately one month. Please use the button below to access the portal.
Notifications for UPK placement will be sent around mid-April.
In planning ahead for registration, you will need the following:
Two (2) proofs of residency
Your child’s birth certificate
District Health form and any additional forms from your child's healthcare provider
Proof of immunizations
Any custody paperwork (if applicable).
