Kindergarten Registration

 

2020-2021

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION
Welcome to the Albert Gallatin Area School District

Due to the sudden closure of our schools, the District was unable to host its traditional in-person registration at each of our elementary schools. While our schools remain closed, we have developed a way for parents/guardians to enroll their child online directly into our student information system. This important step will help us to gather much of the basic and required information needed to assist us in planning for the 2020-2021 school year. As a parent/guardian of a newly enrolled student, we encourage you to frequently visit our District’s website for regular updates and information regarding our schools and programs. We anticipate a great deal of information will need communicated to families throughout the summer relative to the re-opening of Pennsylvania schools and guidelines for such. As you complete the registration process, be advised the importance of reliable contact information. We ask that you notify the school, as soon as possible, of any changes to information entered during the enrollment process. 

 

AGE REQUIREMENT   A child must be five (5) years of age on or before August 31, 2020. To be eligible for first grade a child must be six (6) years of age on or before August 31, 2020.

Please note: Children currently enrolled in an Albert Gallatin Area School District Kindergarten class do not need to register for Grade 1. 

SCHOOL OF ATTENDANCE (New!)     Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, all Kindergarten students, as well as any student new to the district, must enroll in the school designated for the area of their residence within the district. This policy does not include those enrolling who have a sibling currently attending a school other than school of residence. To verify the school of your residence, please contact: Mrs. Sharon Berkshire at (724) 564-7190 ext. 8110

ENROLLMENT PROCESS (New!)        Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, all incoming Kindergarten students AND any students new to the district will begin the enrollment process using the online registration portal (SAPPHIRE). In the event a parent/guardian does NOT have access to a computer or internet, each school in the District has a Parent Center set up for registration. 

The Parent Center will be open:

9:30 – 11:30 and 12:30 – 2:30 Daily (PLEASE CALL TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT)

PRE-K Counts and Head Start Students : Parents/Guardians who have completed forms prior to our District’s closure, are kindly asked to drop them off at the school of your residence.  The school will be accepting them beginning:
