The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania requires medical and dental examinations for children on entrance to school. The District strongly encourages families to have these examinations completed prior to the start of school by your 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.

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. We want to advise all registrants applying for enrollment that making any willful false statement is a crime and subjects the person making such false statements to penalties of perjury pursuant to the Pennsylvania Crimes of Offenses Code 18 PA stat. Section 4901, et. seq. Also, the District may bring further charges against the individual for theft of services pursuant to 18 PA stat. Section 3926 and 18 PA stat. Section 3922, both of which would be considered felonies, and Fraudulent Practices pursuant to 18 PA stat. Section 4101, et. seq. The individual also becomes liable for the average annual tuition of over $10,000 (tuition rates fluctuate from year to year).
