This year, the Bloomsburg Area School District will be registering kindergarten students for the 2016-2017 school year during the week of April 4, by appointment only. To be eligible for admittance to kindergarten in the Bloomsburg Area School District, a child must be five years of age before 1 September 2016.
Registration for all children will be in the attendance area in which they reside. Those living in the Town of Bloomsburg and Wonderview will register at Bloomsburg Memorial Elementary School (570-784-7885); Hemlock and Montour Townships at W. W. Evans Elementary School (570-784-3167); and Beaver and Main Townships at Beaver-Main Elementary School (570-784-0309).
Parents must call the school their child will be attending to make an appointment to register their child. When parents go to the school to register their child for kindergarten, the child will also participate in the kindergarten screening process. This screening provides staff with information about a child’s readiness for kindergarten and will determine if the child would benefit from a pre-kindergarten summer program. A kindergarten orientation will be conducted at each elementary school in August. Parents will receive more information about this at a later date.
Dates for kindergarten registration and screening will be conducted as indicated below:
Memorial Elementary School – Monday, April 4 and Tuesday, April 5
W.W. Evans Elementary School – Thursday, April 7
Beaver-Main Elementary School – Friday, April 8
To complete the registration process, parents or legal guardians must bring their child’s birth certificate, immunization record, and proof of residency. Parents or legal guardians must submit ONE of the following documents as proof of residency: Real estate tax bill, signed lease, or mortgage document or payment book/coupon; OR TWO of the following documents: Gas/electric bill, voter registration card, phone bill (landline only), food stamp card, vehicle registration, bank statement, homeowner/rental insurance, water bill, cable bill, public aid/Medicaid card, credit card statement, paycheck stub, city sticker receipt, or driver’s license/state identification card.
