Enrollment & Registration

Modified Enrollment Due to COVID-19 (GRADES 1-11)


Due to COVID-19 the Allentown School District will modify the current enrollment / dis-enrollment process. Please see below for information regarding enrollment / dis-enrollment for Grades 1-12.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education is recommending if students have begun distance learning in one district, they should remain in that district for the duration of the school year, even if they move within a new school district. Families should be informed of this option prior to beginning enrollment. 

Social distancing guidelines, particularly during a "stay at home" order, may make it difficult for schools and students/families to obtain the documentation typically required for school enrollment. Exercise flexibility in the documentation accepted.

Families can submit proof of immunizations if they have it, if not, a nurse follow up at a later date 
Students that were previously enrolled don’t need to provide proof of birth if unavailable.
