Kindergarten Registration

Last Updated: 1/13/2021 7:14 PM

Registering for the 2021-2022 school year
If your child will be five years old on or before September 1, 2021, you need to register him or her for kindergarten if you have not already done so. 

There are several options for submitting your child’s kindergarten registration information. You can submit your child’s paperwork in one of two ways. 

  1. Drop it off at your child's school
  2. Mail it to your child's school

You only have to do one of the two options. More details about each one is included below. 

What information and forms are required to submit my child’s kindergarten registration? 

Please note that enrollment materials must include:

  • Copies of the student’s birth certificate and parent’s proof of residency
  • Kindergarten Enrollment Packet -- COMING SOON! 
  • Health History/Nursing Packet -- COMING SOON! 
 

Kindergarten Registration Drop-off 

You may drop off your child's kindergarten registration paperwork at his/her school. The address for each elementary school can be found on the right (or below if you are using a mobile device). 

 

Can I just mail the paperwork?

Yes! You can also mail your child’s kindergarten registration paperwork to his/her school. The address for each elementary school can be found on the right (or below if you are using a mobile device). 

 

How do I get the kindergarten registration packet? 

You can download the packet from our website and print it at home.

  • Health History/Nursing Packet -- COMING SOON! 
  •  

If you are unable to print at home, you can also pick up a packet at the District Administration Building (110 Campus Lane, Butler, PA 16001). 

 

I still have a question!

If you would like help with the registration process, please contact the main office of your child's school. ** Please leave a message and somebody will return your call as soon as possible.
