What you should know
The Penn-Delco School District kindergarten program is a half-day program. Each student is assigned to either a morning or afternoon class. The times of each session are:
- AM Kindergarten 8:50am - 11:30am
- PM Kindergarten 12:40pm - 3:20pm
To be eligible for kindergarten admission in September 2021, children must be 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2021. Exceptions to this cut-off date are not permitted. To be included in the kindergarten lottery for morning or afternoon kindergarten preference, registration must be complete on or before April 23, 2021.
NOTE: The compulsory school age in Pennsylvania was recently changed. These changes went into effect during the 2020-2021 school year and will require all students to attend school no later than age 6 and until age 18 or graduation, whichever occurs sooner. These requirements will apply across Pennsylvania.
