Together we can

Welcome to the School District of Lancaster!

Our goal is to make your transition to our school community as easy as possible, even in these challenging times. We are now accepting enrollments by students new to the district for the 2020-2021 school year.  To enroll, click the link below.

During this process you will be given the opportunity to schedule an enrollment appointment in addition to answer a series of questions about your student to help expedite the enrollment process.  Required documents (including Proof of Birth, Immunization Records, Proof of Address) can be submitted electronically.

An enrollment staff member will review the documentation and contact you with any questions.  On the day of your appointment you need only have a brief appointment to sign the actual enrollment forms.  We are utilizing this process to help decrease the amount of time in person visits to adhere to social distance requirements.  Please note, you are required to wear a face mask when attending an in-person enrollment appointment. We are asking that only one person attend this appointment, whenever possible.

Please contact the enrollment center at 717-291-6140 or enrollment-centralrecords@sdlancaster.org if you are unable to complete the online process or need additional assistance.
