Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration: optional in-person March 8 & 9
Do you have a child that will start kindergarten next year? Lincoln Public Schools is now accepting kindergarten registrations for the 2023-2024 school year. Parents of children turning five years of age on or before July 31, 2023 can register their child online now or during our optional in-person days.

When registering, you must provide:
Certified birth certificate
Current immunization record

Families who wish to have their child enroll at an LPS school outside of their attendance area should fill out a Special Attendance Permit which is available at any school or on our website. Questions about kindergarten registration should be directed to the school your child will attend.

***OPTIONAL*** Register in-person at your elementary school in March
Families can go to their neighborhood elementary school and register in person during two special days in March. Our staff will assist you with registering online and filling out the required enrollment forms. Please bring a birth certificate and immunization record for your child. Your child need not be present.

March 8, from 7:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
March 9, from 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Or register now online
Go to and click on the red “Enroll Your Student” button. Here you will also find all the information necessary for registering, the required documents needed and answers to frequently asked questions.

PLEASE NOTE: Students who are currently enrolled in an LPS Early Childhood Program should already be signed up for kindergarten and need not register online. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school.

Early entrance assessment
For children who turn five between August 1 and October 15, parents may request an assessment for their child to receive a waiver to attend school early. More information about the early entrance assessment process can be found here.

Parents who do not have access to the online registration, or wish to register their child in person, should contact their attendance area elementary school as soon as possible. Questions about kindergarten registration should also be directed to the child’s attendance area school.
