Registration for all children who plan to attend kindergarten or first grade for the 2018-2019 school year will be conducted in the Ringgold School District on March 13 and 15, 2018.

Parents should not register children for the first grade if they are attending kindergarten in the Ringgold School District at the present time. These children have already been registered.

A child registering for kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school term must be five before September 1, 2018. Children who have not attended kindergarten and are to be registered for the first grade must contact the building principal and arrange to have their children tested with the present kindergarten classes by April 7, 2018.

Ringgold School District has adopted a policy regarding the early admission of children to kindergarten and first grade. Parents of children who do not the normal age requirements (age 5 by September 1 for kindergarten and age 6 by September 1 for first grade) must request early admission in writing by July 6, 2018. This request must be sent to the building principal. Parents are advised - only exceptional children will be granted early admission.

Parents must present the child’s birth certificate or some proof of the child’s date of birth, along with two proofs of residency (i.e. utility bill, rental agreement, tax bill, etc.) at the time of registration. Vaccination against small pox is no longer required for admission to public schools in Pennsylvania; however, the following immunizations are requirements for all students entering school for the first time in either kindergarten or the first grade:

  • 4 doses of diphtheria tetanus pertussis (one being on or after the fourth birthday)
  • 4 doses of polio (OPV or JPVJ
  • 3 doses of Hepatitis B vaccine
  • 2 doses of measles vaccine (preferably MMR)
  • 2 doses varicella (chicken pox) or documentation of history of chicken pox disease

Children will not be admitted to school for the 2018-2019 school term if they have not been properly immunized. Please bring immunization records at time of registration; if you do not have proper proof of immunizations, you will not be able to register child for kindergarten. Also acceptable would be proof of appointment within 5 days of school starting.

Registration is scheduled from 9 - 11 a.m. and from 1 – 3 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - Ringgold Elementary School North - 724-348-7205
  • Thursday, March 15, 2018 - Ringgold Elementary School South - 724-258-8454

Please bring your child with you to registration. In case of a 2-hour delay, registration will only occur in the afternoon. If you have any questions, please call the building principal of the elementary school that your child will attend.
