Note for Current Manchester Preschool Students

If you have a PreSchool student in Manchester Township School District who will be 5 years old by October 1, 2022 and therefore is eligible for Kindergarten in September, 2022, you will NOT need to register him/her again for Kindergarten during the registration dates in mid-to-late March.  HOWEVER, it is necessary that you update your child’s medical information, because as a child reaches 5-years-old, certain immunizations/ boosters are necessary to start Kindergarten.  Please contact your school nurse for this information.
