REGISTRATIONWelcome 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.
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,

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