Kindergarten Registration for the 2017-2018 school year will be held Thursday, March 2, 2017, by appointment only, at W. W. Evans Elementary for upcoming kindergarteners who will be 5 years old prior to September 1st, 2017. Those residing in the Hemlock and Montour Township will register at W. W. Evans Elementary School. Please call the office 570-784-3167 no later than February 15 to schedule your appointment.
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 W. W. Evans in August. Parents will receive more information about this at a later date.
To complete the registration process, parents or legal guardians must bring their child’s birth certificate or other acceptable proof of child’s date of birth, 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.
