The Mt. Lebanon School District offers a half-day kindergarten program which provides opportunities for children to grow cognitively, physically, socially, and emotionally. Every content area is begun in kindergarten with specific goals and objectives geared to the different developmental levels of the children. Per District Policy JEB, children who reach the age of five before September 8th or the first student day of school (whichever occurs later) are eligible to enter kindergarten in September of that school year. Parents are encouraged to notify the school of their child’s eligibility for the kindergarten program. A birth certificate or passport and evidence of basic immunization must be presented before a child’s entrance to school. New entrants to kindergarten must be enrolled prior to the end of the first two weeks of school, transfer students excepted.
