Ms. Cotumaccio will contact you regarding your child’s registration packet Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Pennsylvania School Law requires a medical examination by a health care provider for all students entering kindergarten, 6th-grade, and 11th- grade, as well as all new students to Pennsylvania schools regardless of grade level.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health requires all children to have a dental examination upon entry into school (kindergarten or 1st-grade), as well as in 3rd- and 7th-grade.

Both medical and dental examinations must be completed within one year prior to the beginning of the school year.

 

Please include the following documents with your child’s registration:
