Kindergarten Registration for the 24-25 School Year

Kindergarten Registration for the 24-25 school year begins on January 1, 2024.  Children who were born between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019 are eligible to register. 

The Rose Tree Media School District does not offer full day kindergarten. Students attend either the AM session or the PM session.

Morning (AM) sessions are often preferred by parents. Student placement in the morning session will be determined by a lottery held at each school. The lotteries will be held during the first full week of April, and placement letters will be mailed by Friday, April 12, 2024. Parents can request to have their child’s name be put on a waiting list for the morning (AM) session. Parents will be notified if an opening occurs. Please be advised that all placements are subject to change depending on final enrollment numbers. 

Once your kindergarten registration is complete and has been approved by the District's registrar, you will be emailed a link for the Kindergarten Placement Request. This request must be submitted by March 22, 2024 in order to be considered for the AM lottery placement.

Parents/guardians who live with relatives or friends must complete a Multiple Occupancy Affidavit. Residency inquiries/request for affidavit forms may be directed to the Registration Office at 610.627.6019.
