Welcome to the 2022-2023 Kindergarten registration process! Please be sure to review all of the information on this page before proceeding to ensure your child is ready for school this fall. Questions about the online enrollment process can be directed to (412) 655-3111, extension 1002. All other questions about the Kindergarten registration process, including the necessary forms and paperwork, can be directed to the South Park Elementary Center office by calling (412) 655-3111, option 3.


In order for your child to be eligible for Kindergarten, the student must reach the age of five (5) before September 1, 2022. 


Families of incoming Kindergarten students should follow the steps below to ensure your child is properly registered for Kindergarten this fall.


STEP ONE - ONLINE REGISTRATION THROUGH THE POWERSCHOOL ENROLLMENT PORTAL
Visit the PowerSchool enrollment portal by clicking here. If you have not enrolled a student through the PowerSchool enrollment portal over the past two school years, you will need to create an enrollment portal account. Please note, an enrollment portal account is different from an existing PowerSchool parent portal account. 

Complete and submit the “New Student Registration” for the 2022-2023 school year. If you have more than one child enrolling in Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year, you will need to complete a registration form for each child. (Registration for students in grades 1-12 for the 2022-2023 school year will begin in May.)


The online registration process provides South Park Elementary Center with much of the information about your child and family that it needs to properly enroll your child.

 

STEP TWO - COMPLETING AND SUBMITTING REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION
Throughout the online registration process, you will be prompted to download, print, and complete the required, additional documents necessary to enroll your child in Kindergarten. Those required forms can also be found below or in the Kindergarten Registration Home & Health packet available by clicking here. We ask that you bring as many of those forms to the elementary center on the day of your child’s screening appointment. An elementary center staff member will review these documents with you while your child is taking part in the screening. You may also bring the completed forms and documents to the elementary center office at your earliest convenience. Dropoffs can be made between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on school days or from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Thursday during the summer.


The required forms to download, print, and bring to your child’s enrollment appointment are:

The district also requires a copy of your child’s birth certificate and two (2) proofs of residency (ex. driver’s license, utility bill, rental agreement). Please provide these to the elementary center office.

Students are also required to have the proper immunizations as set forth by the PA State Health Department and the Allegheny County Health Department. These immunizations are required prior to your child entering school. When registering your child, you must provide a copy of your child's immunizations to the school office. No student's registration can be completed without documentation of the proper immunizations.

The following immunizations are required for entering kindergarten: 4 doses of DTP (1 dose must be on or after 4th birthday) 4 doses of Polio (1 dose must be on or after 4th birthday) 2 doses MMR (1st dose must be on or after 1st birthday) 3 doses of Hepatitis B 2 doses of Varicella (1st dose must be on or after 1st birthday) or a written statement from physician indicating month and year of disease or serologic proof of immunity.

FAMILIES WITHOUT INTERNET ACCESS Families without internet access can forego the online registration portal and complete a kindergarten registration packet. Those packets will be available at the South Park Elementary Center office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning on Wednesday, February 9.
