Registration packets are available now and can be printed from the forms page of the district website.

Completed registration packets can be turned in along with required documentation (see list below) during the week of Feb. 14-18 between the hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the district offices, located in the Knox Building (400 South Perry St., Johnstown).
