This month, Keystone Oaks School District will conduct its annual kindergarten registration for all district children who are eligible for kindergarten in August 2013. Children must be at least 5 years old before Sept. 1, 2013, to be eligible for admission during the 2013-2014 school year.

To register, parents should bring their child’s health, dental and immunization records as well as the child’s proof of age – a state-issued birth certificate, notarized copy of a birth certificate, passport, baptismal certificate, or copy of the record of baptism (with a notarized or duly certified and showing the date of birth as well as notarized statement from the parents or another relative indicating the date of birth).

Parents of newly enrolled students will also be asked to produce two proofs of residency which may include a deed, lease, current utility bill, current property tax bill, current credit card statement or a valid Pennsylvania’s driver’s license.

Parents are encouraged to contact their elementary school for more information and to complete as much registration information as possible before coming to the school.

No appoints are necessary to register. Parents may also obtain registration materials online ahead of time at www.kosd.org under the New Student Registration tab.
