      Required Registration Information

      You must complete all requested registration information online and upload the following documentation:

      • Proof of residency for parent/guardian who resides in the Hempfield School District (deed, lease/rental agreement, current HSD real estate or Lancaster County real estate tax bill, or current utility bill)
        • Lease/rental agreements must be signed by the tenant and landlord within 30 days
      • Student birth certificate or passport
      • Student immunization record (must include first name, last name, and date of birth)
      • Photo ID of parent/guardian

    Age Requirements

    • Kindergarten - A child is eligible for admission to kindergarten if they have attained the age of five years before the first day of September.
    • Grade 1 - A child is eligible for admission to first grade if they have attained the age of six years before the first day of September regardless of prior educational programming (Board Policy 201). 

    The compulsory school age in Pennsylvania requires all students to begin school no later than age 6 and attend school until age 18 or until graduation. A child who has attained the age of 6 before September 1 must enroll and attend school or begin a home school program that year. If a child turns 6 during the school year, they must enroll in school at the beginning of the following year.

    For any student who has not yet started kindergarten, kindergarten registration for the current (2023-24) school year is closed. If you need to register a kindergarten student for the current school year (2023-24) who has already started kindergarten, please visit the New Student Registration page.
