Kindergarten preregistration

Bethel Park School District is holding kindergarten registration for the 2013-2014 school year through Jan. 25. Children who will be age 5 on or before Sept. 1, 2013, are eligible to begin kindergarten in the fall of 2013.

Completed forms can be mailed to the child’s elementary school or dropped off at the school. Parents will then be given the kindergarten registration packet, which should be completed before kindergarten registration begins in March.

The preregistration process assists the school district with planning for the 2013-2014 school year.

Questions about kindergarten or the registration process can be answered by contacting any Bethel Park elementary school. Forms are available online at, or they can be picked up at any Bethel Park elementary school.
