Phone-In Kindergarten Registration

Registering your child during phone-in registration for kindergarten is very important to adequately plan for your child’s first year in the Dover Area School District.  The Dover Area School District provides a full-day kindergarten program for all kindergarten students.  The information at registration is used to budget for the number of kindergarten classes and necessary supplies for the 2014-2015 school year.

Any child who will be five years old before September 1, 2014, is eligible for kindergarten.  To register your child for kindergarten, call the school your child will be attending on January 28, 2014.

Have the following information ready when making the call: child’s name; child’s date of birth; the parent or guardian’s name; address; phone number; names and birth dates of brothers and sisters; if your child has attended a preschool, and also if your child will be attending a day care.

Based on the information provided, the district will mail parents forms and guidelines to be completed for the formal registration to be held in March.

The phone numbers to call are as follows:

Dover Elementary 292-8068
Leib Elementary 292-8070
North Salem Elementary 292-8071
Weigelstown Elementary  292-8072

Any child who has not attended kindergarten during the 2013-2014 school year and will be six years old beforeSeptember 1, 2014 is eligible for 1st grade.  Please register any 1st graders who are eligible and have not attended kindergarten in the Dover Area School District on January 21, 2014.  Kindergarten students now enrolled in the Dover Area School District do not need to register for 1st grade.

If you know of any person living in the Dover Area School District who has a child who would meet the stated age guidelines, please have them call the school the student would be attending to register.
