Important 2017-2018 delayed entry information for Kindergarten families
Here at PHSSA, we will have our kindergarten students participate in a process called delayed entry. During this process, we will be observing students in small groups to place students with a teacher and a class that will best fit their needs. Delayed entry will be happening during the first week of school. Click here for full details and delayed entry schedule.
