KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION for the 2015-2016 School Year

It’s that time of year!!  Kindergarten registration will take place during the month of March.  Registration will occur in all Chambersburg Area School District Elementary Buildings.  Please select the building of your choice.  HOWEVER your selection for building registration does not guarantee that your child will attend that school for kindergarten in the fall. Final Kindergarten school assignments are determined by several kindergarten population factors, so you will receive your child’s school assignment by mail in August. 

If you have (or know of) a child who will be five (5) years of age prior to September 1, 2015, please contact our office at 717-261-3466 and we will be more than happy to set up an appointment for you.
