Pre-K and Kindergarten Registration


The 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 March 19, 2020. Please call the school before March 13, 2020 to schedule an appointment. Children who already attend Pre-K in 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.
