Pre-K and Kindergarten Registration


FOREST AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT has set the registration dates for students entering Pre-K and Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year.

PK/K registration will be held at both East Forest and West Forest on an ongoing basis.   Please call the school before March 26, 2021 to register for the 2021-2022 school year.  Children who already attend Pre-K at Forest Area will be transferred to Kindergarten through their current program.  Parents of children registering for Kindergarten, who are not currently enrolled in East Forest or West Forest, will need to call the school to register.

Registration Requirements:

What to include with your registration packet:

Parents or guardians must bring a birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of residency on their scheduled school visit.
