Additional Information:

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania requires medical and dental examinations for children entering school.  The District strongly encourages families to have these examinations completed before school by their family physician and dentist as they can best evaluate your child's health and assist you in obtaining necessary treatments and corrections if needed.  Forms which can be used to complete these examinations can be found here.

Answers to additional frequently asked questions (FAQs) can be found here. 

PLEASE BE ADVISED: As you complete the forms and provide the necessary documentation for registration, we want to bring to your attention that residency allows the provision of free school privileges to children of school age in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The requirements of residency must be met for enrollment.  If the School District of Haverford Township (“District”) determines that (a) you have supplied false information and/or (b) the information that you provided ceases to be true and you have failed to inform the District of the change in circumstances prior to or at the time the change occurred, then in addition to or in lieu of civil proceedings for collection of nonresident tuition and/or expulsion proceedings, the District may refer the matter to appropriate law enforcement officials and/or initiate a private criminal complaint against you for unsworn falsification to authorities, theft of services and/or any other applicable criminal offense.
