WHO?  All families with a child who will be five years of age by September 1st, 2014 are invited to make an appointment for registration by calling Elementary Services at 261-3417. 


The Chambersburg Area School District will hold additional Kindergarten registration dates:  

  • June 24, 2014 from 9:30 to 11:30 AM at Fayetteville Elementary School 
  • July 15, 2014 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM at Hamilton Heights Elementary School 


Parents need to call to make an appointment to register their child. Parents may register at the school building of their choice; however, this does not guarantee that your child will attend that school building in the fall. Final Kindergarten school assignments are determined by several Kindergarten population factors; you will receive your child's school assignment by mail in August.
