2020-2021 Kindergarten Registration

Pencils

Kindergarten registration for the 2020-2021 school year is now underway. In order for your child to be eligible for kindergarten, the student must reach the age of five (5) before September 1, 2020.

***PLEASE READ ALL OF THE INFORMATION BELOW***

The South Park School District’s kindergarten program is a full-day program for all students.

New this year, the South Park School District has enhanced its kindergarten registration process and has made it easier than ever to register for kindergarten. By partnering with PowerSchool, much of the registration process can be completed online through the PowerSchool enrollment portal.

Families of incoming kindergarten students should follow the steps below to ensure your child is properly registered for kindergarten this fall.

STEP ONE - POWERSCHOOL ENROLLMENT PORTAL

  1. Click here to access the 2020-2021 new student online registration form. You will need to create an account before beginning the registration form.

  2. Complete and submit the “New Student Registration” form for the 2020-2021 school year. If you have more than one child enrolling in kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year, you will need to complete a registration form for each child.

  3. After completing the online registration through the PowerSchool enrollment portal, you will be prompted to schedule a kindergarten screening appointment. A link to the scheduler will be featured on the confirmation page. Screening appointments will be conducted in late-March and early-April. The kindergarten screening assessment is a simple, 10-15 minute assessment to check basic kindergarten readiness. Skills such as letter and number identification, rhyming, counting, saying the alphabet and shape identification are some of the basic skills students may have before entering kindergarten. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your child’s scheduled appointment. During your child’s screening, a South Park Elementary Center staff member will review your completed registration and medical forms with you. If you have registered online but still need to schedule your screening appointment, click here.

STEP TWO - COMPLETING AND SUBMITTING REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION

Throughout the online registration process, you will be prompted to download, print, and complete required documents necessary to enroll your child in kindergarten. We ask that you bring these completed documents with you to your child’s kindergarten screening. These documents are also available by clicking here. The required documents include:

The district also requires a copy of your child’s birth certificate and two (2) proofs of residency (ex. driver’s license, utility bill, rental agreement). Please bring these with you to your child’s screening appointment.

Students are also required to have the proper immunizations as set forth by the PA State Health Department and the Allegheny County Health Department. These immunizations are required prior to your child entering school. When registering your child, you must provide a copy of your child's immunizations to the school office. No student's registration can be completed without documentation of the proper immunizations.

The following immunizations are required for entering kindergarten:

  • 4 doses of DTP (1 dose must be on or after 4th birthday)

  • 4 doses of Polio (1 dose must be on or after 4th birthday)

  • 2 doses MMR (1st dose must be on or after 1st birthday)

  • 3 doses of Hepatitis B

  • 2 doses of Varicella (1st dose must be on or after 1st birthday) or a written statement from physician indicating month and year of disease or serologic proof of immunity.

Families without internet access can forego the online registration portal and complete a kindergarten registration packet. Those packets will be available in the South Park Elementary Center office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning on Wednesday, February 26.

If you have any questions about the online registration process, please call (412) 655-3111, extension 1002.

Soon-to-be kindergarten students and their families are invited to stop by South Park Elementary Center for a guided tour of the building on Monday, March 16 from 6:30- 7:30 p.m. Guided tours will be given every 10 minutes. You will also be able to ask SPEC Principal Dr. Furman any questions you may have about registration or our full-day program.

We look forward to welcoming a new class of Eagles this fall!
