• Registering your Child for 2024-25 School Year

    Registrations will begin June 19, 2024

    The school secretary or guidance department will be calling you to set up a face-to-face appointment at the school.  The scheduling of these appointments will begin after June 19th.   Please be patient as face-to-face appointments are based on the principal/school counselor's summer schedule.    

                          

     Step 1 - Assess Eligibility and Needs

    New Students

    Students who have never attended or are returning to LDSD school must be registered by their custodial parent (biological, adoptive, legal guardian).

    Children must be 5 years old by September 1, 2024, in order to enroll in kindergarten. Every child who is 6 years old by September 1, 2024, must be enrolled in a kindergarten program this fall.  

    Homeschool, Private School, & Cyber School students: We would like to enter your child in our database.  Please call the district office to obtain more information on this step. 

    Step 2 - Find your School

    You must reside within Lower Dauphin School District in order for your children to be enrolled here. Use this link to see if you reside within the district:
