Kindergarten Registration

Good afternoon South Side Elementary Families, 

We are pleased to share the following link to officially register your child for kindergarten.  We are excited for this online platform and the ability to go paperless.  This tool, called Sapphire, will be where you can, next year, electronically print report cards, check attendance, or change necessary phone contacts with the click of a button.  It will be a system that you will need to become familiar with.  At the current time, we are using this for online enrollment with our incoming kindergarten students only.   


Here is the link with instructions for first time users:  


To Register Using Sapphire:

  1. After clicking the link, click Register a new student with the district.
  2. Click to Create a New Account.
  3. Enter necessary information to create your account.
  4. Go into your email and check for a validation email.  Click the link given in the email and type in your password.  Your  account is now active.
  5. Click the link to login and register your child.  (It will be helpful to have your child's birth certificate and proof of residency at your fingertips as they will be required prior to submission.)                                                        
Blaine Mott Bus Lane
On Wednesday, June 5, 2019, the School District Board of Directors held a dedication ceremony for family and community members in memory of Blaine Mott. Blaine started Southside Garage with his wife Gert and two partners, Bill Laughlin and Bill Burris in 1963 with two buses. From these humble beginnings, Blaine and Gert continued to provide safe and reliable transportation to the student of South Side Area School District until their retirement in 1992.
South Side Area School District would like to thank Blaine for his dedication to the students and families of our District. We are privilege to dedicate our bus lane in your name!

New scoreboard
Recently the District partnered with Slam Dunk Sports Marketing to purchase a new scoreboard since the previous board became inoperable at the close of the 2016 fall sports season. The photo below showcases the new board that was made possible in part by generous sponsorship donations. Opportunities still exist for additional sponsors to be added. Sincere thanks and appreciation to those who contributed!
