For entrance to Kindergarten, a child residing in the district shall have attained the chronological age of five (5) years on or prior to September 1 (policy #201). A parent/guardian information session is held each year in January to assist parents with registering their son or daughter into kindergarten. Kindergarten registration is typically held over five days in March of the preceding year. As part of registration, parents will need to complete a registration form, as well as provide the following documentation:
During kindergarten registration week, the school nurse will also be on hand to discuss any health concerns related to the incoming kindergarten student. If you are unable to attend one of the official kindergarten registration days, registration will be held by appointment only (see Student Registration information). In addition, the EASD publishes a guidebook to help ensure your child’s entrance into our school system is a productive and satisfying experience (2016-2017 Kindergarten Handbook).

Intent to Enroll in Kindergarten
The district has developed an "intent to enroll in kindergarten" form to help it better plan for appropriate kindergarten class sizes at each of its elementary schools. It is not binding and is voluntary. The district strongly encourages parents of school-aged children to complete the form regardless of whether you plan to enroll your child in Elizabethtown Area School District's kindergarten program. The intent to enroll form can be accessed by clicking on the link below.
If you have questions about kindergarten registration, contact Gayle Navratil, Student Attendance and Registration Office, by phone at (717) 361-4893 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
