Dear Parents of Kindergarten-Age Children,
Welcome! This is truly an exciting time for you and your child. All four of Solanco School District’s elementary schools offer half-day kindergarten for children who are five years old by September 30, 2022. Kindergarten readiness screenings are scheduled for March 9-10, 2022 and March 14-18, 2022.
We hope you can join us for our Kick off to Kindergarten event that will be held on Thursday, February 3rd, 2022 from 6:30-7:30PM at Solanco High School. If you’d like to register for the event, please email Brittney Booher at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be providing information about the online registration process and explaining the kindergarten readiness screener. At that time, you will have the opportunity to schedule your son or daughter’s kindergarten readiness screening. This year, we will be offering both in person and Zoom screening appointments. If you are unable to attend the event, please call the Solanco Registration Office at 717-786-0517 to schedule your child’s kindergarten readiness screening.
We are requesting that you register your child via the electronic registration system that is accessible from the district’s website at www.solancosd.org. Once you have completed the electronic registration, we will need a copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport, immunization record, and proof of residency for yourself. Valid proof of residency includes: current utility bill, lease or mortgage statement, bank statement, pay stub or valid vehicle insurance card. These items can be submitted by one of the following methods:
1) scanned or clearly photographed and e-mailed to email@example.com
2) copies placed in an envelope and placed into the secure drop- box located at the side door of the Administration Building
3) copies can be mailed to Solanco School District, Attn: Registration, 121 S. Hess St. Quarryville, PA 17566.
We must receive each of these 3 documents and completion of the electronic registration in order for your child to be officially registered for school. Questions about the online registration process and submission of documents should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 717-786-0517.
In addition to the half day kindergarten sessions, the Solanco School District offers an Extended Day Kindergarten. Children who are identified to be in the most need of additional instruction beyond the regular half day program will be invited to participate in Extended Day Kindergarten. Eligibility will be based upon the readiness assessment that your child will be taking with the Solanco teacher. Children taking part in the extended day program will attend the Extended Day class for one-half of their day, and the regular half day kindergarten class for the other. This program, which has proven very successful for improving student achievement, is a voluntary program for which parents can accept or decline the invitation to participate.
We look forward to seeing you at our Kick off to Kindergarten event on February 3rd!
The Solanco School District Registration Team
