Michael Garzella, superintendent of the Pittston Area School District, has announced that final registration of students who plan on attending kindergarten in the Pittston Area School District for the 2015-16 school year will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Aug. 12 at the Pittston Area Primary Center, Hughestown. All students must be 5 years old by August 31, 2015.

During registration, all children must have to have proof of immunizations required by the PA Department of Health. Children will also receive a Reading Readiness Assessment, which is an assessment of pre-reading skills, consisting of two parts: identifying letters of the alphabet and phonemic awareness assessment.

Parents can save up to 30 minutes on registration day by pre-registering and downloading a registration packet that can be obtained from the school’s website at www.pittstonarea.com or by picking up a packet at any district building. For more information call 570-655-3785, ext. 4.
