We are excited to welcome families of incoming kindergarten students to Southern York County School District! We look forward to working in partnership with you to help your child learn and grow.
At this time, we are beginning a preliminary registration of children in our school district who will be eligible to enter Kindergarten in August 2022. The admission of students to Kindergarten for the 2022-23 school year is limited to those children who are five years old on or before August 31, 2022. If you feel that your child is not ready for school, you are encouraged to contact your child’s building principal to discuss your concerns. Even though your child may meet the age requirements for Kindergarten, under state law you do not have to send your child to school at this time.
Families with children attending kindergarten next year who have not already registered should do so by clicking this link: https://pasyc-sapphire.k12system.com/CommunityWebPortal/Welcome.cfm.
Those who have already filled out the online registration, please upload the following documents and send them to the appropriate building office listed below. Pictures of documents are fine.
- Proof of Age (birth certificate, hospital records, passport, or notarized statement of age)
- Two forms of proof of residence (driver's license, car registration, utility bill, lease)
