Forest Area to register students by appointment

From staff reports

Registration and screening will be held by appointment for students entering Pre-K and kindergarten in Forest Area School District for the first time in the 2018-2019 school year.

Parents can call West Forest Elementary School at (814) 755-3302 or East Forest Elementary School at (814) 927-6688 to make an appointment.

Children must be four years old by Aug. 28 to enter Pre-K or five years old by Aug. 28 to enter kindergarten unless they have already completed Pre-K in the 2017-2018 school year.

Parents or guardians must bring a birth certificate, immunization records, proof of residency, as well as the completed registration packet on registration day. In addition, proof of income (W2, pay stub, etc.) will allow the school district to apply for PK Counts funding that will provide additional materials and services for the classroom.

Registration packets will be available at each school, and online at

Registration will take about 30 minutes.

Children registering for kindergarten who already attend Pre-K in Forest Area will be screened in their current program, so parents do not need to register their child.
