Laurel Valley Elementary School is seeking to register 3- and 4-year-olds who live in the district for kindergarten this fall.

Registration and K4 screening will be held at the school Mar. 25-26. Parents should call the school office at 724-235-2723 to make an appointment.

Admission to kindergarten is recommended for children who turn 3 or 4 on or before Sept. 1, 2019.

Assistant Principal Wayne Waugh said children must accompany parents to the registration/screening. State law requires that parents bring the child’s birth certificate, complete immunization record and proof of residency. A current driver’s license or any document with the parents’ name and current Ligonier Valley School District address will be accepted. Parents also are asked to bring proof of income such as their W2 and 2018 income tax return to qualify for the Pre-K counts program.

School officials ask residents to inform friends, neighbors or relatives with qualifying children of this registration/screening.

A special orientation for kindergarten students who register in March will be held in August.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
