Kindergarten Information

Peters Township: Kindergarten

Tree made up of alphabet letters

We are excited to welcome your child to Peters Township!

Children must be five years old on or before September 1 to enter kindergarten in our schools. If your child will not be five years old by September 1, and you wish to explore early entry, please contact the building principal to review early entry criteria.
Below is a step by step guide for registering your child for kindergarten in Peters Township Schools:

Step One:

To get started, please begin by gathering the necessary documents required by the District. This information includes proof of your child's age, verification of residency and documentation indicating that your child has been given the immunizations that are required by law. Below is a checklist of acceptable items that can be used for this documentation.

Step Two:

The District also requires that a health packet is completed for each child. The packet consists of three items that must be returned:
  1. A completed physical examination form (form provided, must be completed by your physician).
  2. A completed dental examination form (form provided, must be completed by your dentist).
  3. A completed Medical History form (form provided, may be completed by the parent). 
If your child has already seen a doctor or dentist IN THIS CALENDAR YEAR, please have them complete these forms and bring them with you to registration. These completed documents may be scanned and uploaded through the online registration portal (See Step 3). Hard copies will also be accepted at registration.
Please download copies of the Health Forms below:
Physical, Dental and Health History forms provided.

Step Three:

Complete the online registration forms for your child. This information should be complete prior to your attendance at one of the registration sessions at the school. Using the portal, parents also have the option of uploading a scanned copy of their competed medical forms or proof of residency.
Please note: If you are a parent with an older child in the District, you may already have a SchoolMint account. Please log in with your username and password and the system will automatically retrieve some of your demographic information. Questions or trouble with the online form? Please contact the Technology Office at 724-941-6251 x7261.

Step Four:

Plan on attending one of the on-site registration sessions at your child's school. The online packet should be complete prior to attending the session. Please remember to bring your proof of age, residency and health packet information in the event that you were not able to upload the documents into the online portal.
