The North Allegheny School District (NASD) announces that Kindergarten Registration will be held on March 4, 2014. Registration will be held at each of the elementary schools during the day from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. A District-wide evening registration will also occur on March 4th at two buildings only (Marshall Elementary and McKnight Elementary) from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. (If the March 4th date needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, the make-up date will be March 11, 2014 following the same schedule listed above.)
Registration information and a registration packet are available on the District’s website.
A review of the following documents is necessary before any child can be registered for kindergarten. Parents are asked to bring them when they come to register on March 4th:
• Completed Registration Packet* (available on the District’s website). • Child’s original birth certificate (student must be 5 by September 1, 2014). • Child’s current immunization record. • Two forms of proof of residency.
*Medical and dental forms, which are included in the Registration Packet, are not required to be completed for registration, but are to be submitted on the first day of school.
Parents may come to any elementary building to register their child for kindergarten. When students are registered, parents may indicate their preference for AM/PM kindergarten. However, the assignment of students to AM/PM classes will not be done on a first-come, first- served basis. Building principals will assign children to AM/PM kindergarten using both class-size guidelines and the preferences marked on the registration forms.
If the principal cannot assign all students to their parents’ preferred kindergarten session, a lottery will be conducted in that building by randomly drawing names for the AM/PM sections. More information about the Lottery System is available in the Kindergarten Registration Packet that is on the website.

“Up the Down Stair Case” tells the story of a first-time teacher, Sylvia Barrett, in an inner city New York school. Students pour into the classroom, cautious, testing, and challenging. Simultaneously, there’s a blizzard of paperwork, warnings, contradictory orders, and indecipherable instruction. Soon Sylvia finds herself involved in a near war with a discipline-over-everything administrator, but, most of all, involved in the unexpected, sometimes heartbreaking problems of her students.
For more information about the NAI play, please call NAI at 412-369-5530.
