Parents/guardians must bring the child’s state birth certificate, or other proof of birth, the child’s social security number(recommended), and documentation of the child’s completed basic immunizations to the registration. Pennsylvania School Code mandates that NO child will be allowed to enter school without the following basic immunizations: diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella (German measles), varivax, and hepatitis B. A second MMR is also required.
Parents/guardians must also present acceptable proof of residence as part of the registration process before a student is permanently permitted to attend school. Failure to do so will result in the student's registration being delayed. The following are examples of acceptable proof:
• A mortgage or lease is mandatory at registration, along with two of the following proofs of residency: current utility bill, moving permit, car registration or car insurance, tax statements, check stubs from wages, public assistance or social security, current credit card statement. Should only a lease or mortgage be available at registration, two other proofs must be presented to the school within thirty (30) days.
Custody papers and affidavits of support, if applicable, should also be presented.
Children entering Kindergarten must be five (5) years of age before September 1st to enroll.
It is the policy of the Board of Education to provide a free and appropriate public education to each handicapped student within its jurisdiction, regardless of the nature or severity of the handicap. Parents/guardians who feel a child is in need of special programming or accommodations may request an evaluation through any school guidance office. It is the intent of the district to ensure that students who are handicapped within the definition of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or Chapter 14 are identified, evaluated and provided with appropriate educational services.
For those parents/guardians who miss this registration period, please know that Central Registration is open during the summer, as well as during the school year. Please call to make an appointment to register your child/children as soon as possible.
