2023-2024 Kindergarten Registration Has Started

South Fayette Elementary School is getting ready to welcome its newest class of Lions this fall! Online kindergarten registration for the 2023-2024 school year is now open! All students must be five (5) years old on or before September 1, 2023 in order to register for kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year.

South Fayette Elementary School offers a half-day kindergarten program that fosters learners’ natural curiosity and supports their academic, creative, and social growth. A day in our kindergarten classroom includes opening exercises, language arts, math, social studies, science, story time, and explore time. Support services are provided for our learners who have special needs or who are learning English as a second language.

The morning kindergarten session begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 11:45 a.m. The afternoon kindergarten session begins at 12:38 p.m. and ends at 3:23 p.m. Families will be notified of their child’s assigned session (morning or afternoon) in early June. These determinations are based on the neighborhood or daycare.

The online kindergarten registration process is a step-by-step process, designed to be convenient for our Lion families.
