Elk Lake Kindergarten Registration Coming in April

The Elk Lake School District has scheduled kindergarten registration for April 6, 7 and 8. Parents who have not received an appointment should call the school at 570-278-1106, ext. 730 and ask for Miss Carey.

Children must be five years of age by Sept. 1 of this year in order to enter kindergarten for the 2011 -2012 school year.

Parents are reminded that the Pennsylvania Law requires that children entering school for the first time must have completed the following minimum immunizations: diphtheria, tetanus (four doses), with the fourth dose at age four or after; polio (three doses), hepatitis B (three doses); measles (two doses); mumps (two doses); German measles and two doses of Varicella (chicken pox) or history of chicken pox disease. Most students entering school will have more than the required immunizations.

Children who are not properly immunized will not be permitted to enter school unless they have a written medical or religious exemption. There is no grace period therefore we recommend that you contact your child's health care provider to be sure your child is completely immunized.

Parents registering children will be required to produce evidence of immunizations, birth certificate, social security number and proof of residency (an electric bill with your name and address on it).
