K
  • We are excited to welcome YOU to our RANGER FAMILY!

    The paperwork portion of registration is completed online.  The registration portal will open Monday, January 23, 2023.  If you have questions or do not have access to a computer, please contact Mrs. Carol Staley at cstaley@fortcherry.org or 724.796.1551 ext 2418.


    Below is a step-by-step guide for registering your child for Kindergarten:

    Step One:
    To get started, the District requires the following information to complete your child's registration.
    Please begin by gathering the items listed below:

    • Your child's birth certificate
    • Two Proofs of residency (lease/rental agreement/mortgage statement, automobile registration/insurance card, utility bill, pay stub/ACCESS card)
    • Photo ID of Parent/Guardian enrolling child (Driver's License, Passport, or Identity Card (cannot be expired)
    • Copy of your child's YTD Immunizations as required by law (must be a copy from Health Care Provider)

    You will be asked to upload these documents...a clear scan or picture (jpeg or the like) will upload well.  You may scan the documents using a copy scanner, take a clear/readable picture with your phone, or use the scan option in the notes app to create an image of these documents.


    Step Two:
    →  Complete the online registration application following the instructions below:

    You will begin by creating a login on our Student Registration Community Web Portal:
    https://fortcherry-sapphire2.k12system.com/CommunityWebPortal/Registration/index.cfm

    • Click on CREATE a NEW ACCOUNT--you will be asked to enter your first and last name, working email address, desired password and a security question/answer.

    • Once you complete this step, you will be directed to verify your email address. Check your email for a message titled: "Community Web Portal Student Registration Account Email Confirmation".

    • Verify your newly created account through the email sent to you.  You are now ready to begin the online registration application (it is very important to remember your newly created password--you will need to enter your email and password each time you enter the registration portal).

    HEALTH and DENTAL FORMS:

    The Nurse's office will need a Physical and Dental form completed for your child during their Kindergarten year of school.  Best practice is to have these scheduled visits completed before December and return the paperwork to the Nurse by then.

    Return the following completed health forms to Mrs. Ashley Barghausen, Elementary Center Nurse, abarghausen@fortcherry.org.

    • Physical Examination form is provided in the online registration packet.  A hard copy can be requested if you cannot print it at home.  Complete the parent portion, take the form with you to a scheduled appointment, then have the medical professional complete the rest of the form.
    • Dental Examination form is provided in the online registration packet.  A hard copy can be requested if you cannot print it at home.  Complete the parent portion, take the form with you to a scheduled appointment, then have the dentist complete the rest of the form.

    You may return these documents by scanning and attaching them to an email, sending them through the U.S. Mail, or dropping them off at our district offices.
