2020-21 Kindergarten Registration Opens February 1, 2020

Kindergarten registration is for students planning to attend kindergarten in the Northern York County School District for the upcoming school year. Children who are legal residents of the district are eligible for admission to kindergarten if they have attained the age of five (5) years before September 1 of the year in which they will start attending school.

Northern York County School District uses an online registration process:

  • After February 1, please complete a registration form by going to www.northernpolarbears.com
  • Under the “For Parents” tab, choose New Student Registration, and follow the instructions to access the 2020/21 Kindergarten Registration Form. Our District Registrar will contact you after you complete the registration form.

 Northern will host two (2) kindergarten screening days for ALL kindergarteners registered for 2020/21. Screening Dates (Your Child Must Attend the Screening):

  • Dillsburg Elementary School - Saturday, April 4, 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

If you are unable to attend on April 4 or May 6, please notify the secretary of the elementary school your child will attend to schedule an alternate date and time.

After completing the registration form, you will need to schedule a time for your child’s screening by going to www.myconferencetime.com/nycsdadmin. Please select the Kindergarten Registration tab and pick your preferred day and time. If you need assistance, please call the registration office.
