First day of school

First-year teacher Julia Albrecht lines up her kindergarten class outside Campbell Elementary School as LPS students headed back to classrooms across the city in August 2018.

Reminder for parents of soon-to-be kindergartners: you have a month left to get your children registered online at Lincoln Public Schools.

Children who turn 5 years old before July 31 are eligible for kindergarten beginning in August.

Parents can register their children for kindergarten online at lps.org by clicking on the red “Enroll Your Student” button. There they will find all necessary information and required documents needed.

LPS officials ask that parents complete the enrollment before May 15.

Parents of children who turn 5 between Aug. 1 and Oct. 15 may request an assessment for their child to receive a waiver to attend school early. That information is also on the kindergarten enrollment page.

All questions about kindergarten registration should be directed to the child's attendance area school.
