Q. How can I enroll?
A. In order to enroll at River Gate, we need two pieces of required documentation: Birth Certificate and Proof of Residency (a utility bill, pay stub, or a letter from ODJFS dated within 30 days). If the person enrolling is a minor, and someone other than the parent has custody/guardianship, we need that legal documentation as well.
