The new kindergarten student should be present at the time of signups with parents/guardians reminded students must have had a number of medical immunizations/shots and provide a child’s original birth certificate as well as proof of residency.

Questions can be directed for those who will attend Lake Elementary to 814-683-5900 ext. 8191 and at Valley Elementary at 814-683-5900 ext. 6326.

The signups will help school directors plan more fully for the budget to begin July 1 for the 2017-18 school year.

School board members will hold a work session on March 14, for a preliminary review of the 2017-18 school year with plans to hold a community meeting in April for a public budget review.

The budget committee [Jody Sperry, Dot Luckock, David Schaef] has started work on the upcoming budget but still have much work to do as only a small portion of the review has been completed and of course little is known what the final state budget may be. Cuts are being recommended in state transportation monies at the state level.
