New Enrollments or Registration

Beginning March 1, 2019, all new student enrollments for children entering kindergarten through 12th grade will be done at the the administrative building on Island Blvd.  Please call the main office - 570-286-3721.



2020-2021 Kindergarten Registration

A child is eligible for admission to kindergarten if she/he has attained the age of five (5) years on or before September 1, 2021. Children eligible for registration are those who will enter kindergarten who did not 30.attend kindergarten during the current 2019-20 school year.

Contact any district office to obtain a Registration Appointment form.

Because of the school closure the scheduled screenings for kindergarten have been postponed.  Within the next few weeks we will be requesting parents to register online through our new student information system called, Sapphire.  We will be contacting you with how to access the system.

Our hope is to reschedule the screenings for later in the summer.  We will keep parents updated on the registration process.


McKinney Vento Homeless Act

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Act guarantees a free and appropriate public education for all homeless children and youth.  Federal and state laws make the school district’s responsibility clear.

  • A student whose family becomes homeless may remain in the school he/she was attending prior to becoming homeless for the duration of the school year.

  • If it is feasible, a student may transfer to a school if it is closer to his/her transitional housing.

  • The receiving school may not prevent or delay the enrollment of a homeless child by requiring proof of residency or lack of documentation such as immunization records.  

  • Transportation for homeless must begin within 5 school days, but sooner if possible.


Reminders:
  • All visitors must use the visitor entrance and report to the office.
  • All clearances must be on file in order to participate in classroom activities.
  • Please inform the office no later than 2:30 pm of any changes in your child's transportation home from school.
  • When absent, students must submit a written excuse within 3 days of the absence.  Otherwise, the absence will be considered unlawful.
  • Lost and Found is located in the school lobby.  Items not claimed at the end of each month will be donated to a local charity.
  • Educational Journey requests are to be submitted 10 days prior to the trip.


Awards Presentation
Because we couldn't be together, our teachers put together this video to present the awards to their students.  Certificates for the award winners will be mailed home.  Congratulations to all our students and I hope you enjoy the show!
