Eastern Lancaster County School District uses PowerSchool Enrollment, an online student registration program, which allows parents/guardians to input student information right from the comfort of their own home, office, public library, or any other web-hosted location.

Immunizations Information (Note from Head School Nurse, Joy Hoover, RN)
- The immunization law currently states students need to have the immunizations completed by the first day of school. Completed or updated Immunizations records can be faxed directly to the school nurse or emailed. If changes are made to the law for any reason we will follow the state guidelines.
- Parents can schedule well child checks and dental appointments according to the medical/dental offices current policies. The completed forms can be returned on the first day of school or when completed if the appointment is after school begins. Students may attend school if the exam hasn’t been completed.
