Northern Lehigh School District will hold kindergarten registration by appointment in April. Parents may register their child at Peters Elementary School on Monday, April 15, through Wednesday, April 17. In order to enter kindergarten in September, a child must be 5 years old as of Sept. 1, 2013.

At the time of registration, parents must provide the child's originally issued birth certificate, a record of the child's immunizations, and parent photo identification.

Two different proofs of residency are also required. Acceptable proofs are the following: driver's license (updated or with change of address card), moving permit, deed, current tax bill/receipt, mortgage document/bill, rental lease agreement, current utility bill, vehicle registration card, or multiple occupancy permit.

Children entering kindergarten should be brought along for a brief academic assessment. For more information regarding required documentation, visit the Northern Lehigh School District's website at www.nlsd.org [1].
