The Bloomsburg Area School District will be
accepting registrations for children to be enrolled in the district’s
kindergarten classes for August 2015. To
be eligible for admittance to kindergarten in the Bloomsburg Area School District,
a child must be five years of age before 1 September 2015. Registration is planned for the week of
February 23-27. Registrations will be
accepted from 9:30am to 2:30pm at all three elementary schools. Please call to set up an appointment time at the office.
Registration for all children will be in the attendance
area in which they reside. Those living
in Hemlock and Montour Townships will register at W. W. Evans
Elementary School (570-784-3167).
To complete the registration process, parents
or legal guardians must bring a copy of 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. It will not be
necessary to bring the child when registering.
During registration, parents will also sign up
their child to participate in the kindergarten screening which will take place
in Friday, May 8. 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.
