Kindergarten Registration 2019-2020

***NEW! Register your kindergarten student online now!***

Do you have a child that will start kindergarten next year? Lincoln Public Schools is excited to announce you can register your child when it is convenient for you – before the in person registration days.

Starting on Jan. 1, 2019, parents of children who will start kindergarten in Aug. 2019 can register their child online. Filling out the required paperwork online is an alternative to registering in person at our school on specific designated days in March.

After Jan. 1, parents of children who will turn five years of age before July 31, 2019 will be able to go to and click on the red “Enroll Your Student” button. Here you will find all the information necessary for registering, the required documents needed and answers to frequently asked questions.

For children who turn five between Aug. 1 through Oct. 15, parents may request an assessment for their child to receive a waiver to attend school early. That information is also located on the kindergarten registration page.

We will still hold in-person registration days for those who wish to register at our school. Parents can stop by our school on March 6 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or March 7 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to fill out the enrollment information.

Questions about kindergarten registration should be directed to the child’s attendance area school. For more information about kindergarten registration and assessment testing for incoming students, please go to
