Registration Process

Starting July 1, 2020, all registrations will be completed online through the Registration Gateway.  In order to complete the registration process, you must upload all of the required paperwork, medical forms and residency information OR schedule an appointment to make alternate plans for the paper document requirements.  At the end of the online registration process, you will have the opportunity to book an appointment with our registrar.

At this time, ALL appointments will be held virtually or over the phone. 

Registrations for all schools are managed through the central office in the Administration Building, 1901 E. Paper Mill Rd., Oreland, PA.  During the school year, appointments are available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (closed 12 pm - 1 pm).

If you have questions or any difficulty accessing the Registration Gateway, please email registrar@sdst.org or call (215) 233-6000 x1000. 

All pre-registered students (including incoming Kindergarten) will be added to our student information system for the 20-21 school year on July 13, 2020.  After that time, you can expect to begin to recieve messages from the school district using our school messenger system.  This is the main source of communication from the district regarding events, news, and updates.  

All families who are registering as non-public for transportation purposes, please contact the transportation department directly with any questions about your registration process at transoffice@sdst.org or (215) 233-6095.

  • Pennsylvania School Law requires a medical examination by a physician for all students entering kindergarten, 6th-grade, and 11th- grade, as well as all new students to Pennsylvania schools regardless of grade level.
  • The Pennsylvania Department of Health requires all children to have a dental examination upon entry into school (kindergarten or 1st-grade), as well as in 3rd- and 7th-grade.
  • Both medical and dental examinations must be completed within one year prior to the beginning of the school year.

The law permits medical, moral or religious exemptions if the appropriate forms are completed and kept on record at the child's school. These forms may be obtained by contacting the child's school nurse. Students with medical, moral or religious exemptions may be excluded from school in the event of an outbreak of vaccine-preventable diseases.
