Penn Hills School District

The vision of the Penn Hills School District is to engage our entire community to inspire individual students to their highest levels of reading and academic achievement while instilling a commitment to service, respect, and life-long learning.

*** Registering Your Child for Kindergarten ***

If you are looking for information on registering your child for kindergarten (or pre-K) in the 2014-15 school year, click the image below.  You'll find instructions, forms, and contact information for the District's Student Registration Department.

In the meantime, you can find helpful tips on getting your child ready for the transition to kindergarten by clicking here.  And, below you will find important information on the staggered start for kindergarten:

Dear Kindergarten Families,

As your child enters kindergarten, it marks a milestone in his/her educational career. It is an important time for you and your child. In order to facilitate this exciting transition into school, the Penn Hills School District will be implementing a “staggered start” model for our 2014-2015 kindergarten students.  On August 25 and 26, 2014, kindergarteners will attend Kindergarten Kick-Start Days at Penn Hills Elementary School, accompanied by their parents/caregivers.

There will be four Kindergarten Kick-Start sessions.  Kindergarten students and their families have been assigned a session based on the first letter of the child’s last name, as listed below. You will only need to attend your assigned session. Then, the first regular day of school for all kindergarten students will be Wednesday, August 27, 2014.

*Please note that kindergarten students/parents are NOT to ride the buses on these days.

Kindergarten Kick Start Days provide an opportunity for the parents/caregivers to accompany their kindergarten-aged child to school and remain with their child for a shortened school day.  By following this format, only about one-fourth of each kindergarten class will attend each session, thusly allowing for the students to receive more individualized attention in the small groups. The students can become familiar with the teacher, the school environment and expectations, and their new classmates.  In addition, the parents have the opportunity to learn the new school routines and procedures and to become familiar with the kindergarten curriculum and learning goals.

Please save the date of your assigned Kick-Start session in your calendar.  Your child’s specific teacher and room information will be sent the week of August 18th.  If you have any questions regarding your assigned session, please contact the Penn Hills Elementary School office at 412.793.7000 x7100.  My kindergarten team and I are excited to grow with you and your child. I look forward to meeting you all!

Yours in Education,

Kristin L. Brown, Principal

*** The Costs of Charter and Cyber Charter Schools ***

The Pennsylvania School Boards Association Education Research and Policy Center has published an updated document on the research and policy implications of cyber/charter schools on public school districts.  It provides an in-depth review of the costs of these institutions and the impact on taxpayers.  To read this report, click here.
