Kindergarten Registration


Dear Parents and Families,


We are excited to welcome families of incoming kindergarten students to Southern York County School District! As with many other things this year, kindergarten registration will look a little different.


You may enroll in one of two ways. For your convenience, an online option is available at our District website (  Click Parent Portal\Sapphire\New Student Registration. You may also return the enclosed entry form and email it to your school listed below.  Please complete either option before February 19th, 2021.

You will then receive an invitation to a virtual meeting time with our kindergarten team to be held on February 24, 2021 between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. In August, you will receive additional information including classroom assignment, busing information, and an invitation to our Open House to visit your child’s new classroom. 

Just a reminder that State law requires that before entering school, all children must have completed the following immunizations. Please contact your physician to obtain a copy.  Your child may not be admitted to school until these requirements are met.

  • 4 doses of tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis (one dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of polio (4th dose on or after 4th birthday and at least 6 months after previous dose given)
  • 2 doses of measles, mumps and rubella
  • 3 doses of hepatitis B given at properly spaced intervals
  • 2 doses of varicella (chicken pox) or history of immunity

The admission of students to Kindergarten for the 2021-22 school year is limited to those children who are five years old on or before August 31, 2021. 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.

We look forward to having you join our Southern York County School District family and working in partnership with you to help your child learn and grow.
