Hempfield elementary schools to hold registration
Hempfield Area School District will offer kindergarten and first-grade registration for the 2013-14 school year this month.
Officials are urging residents to register children in February to assist with enrollment and staffing projections.
Children entering kindergarten must be 6 years old by Aug. 31 this year to qualify for enrollment. Children already enrolled in the district for kindergarten have already been registered for first grade.
Registration will be held at each elementary school. Parents and guardians in a neighborhood that has been redistricted with the future closing of Bovard Elementary should register children at the school where they attend next year.
Alternate locations may be used by those unable to attend on the date scheduled for their school.
Those dates are:
