Families with children who turn five years old before Sept. 1, 2019, are encouraged to sign their child up now for school next fall. Each school has approximately 60 kindergarten spots open on a first-come-first-served basis. Early registration helps make sure that children attend their own neighborhood school. If one school fills, students are referred to a different Longview school. Registration for the 2019-2020 school year is open now.
Registration can be done online 24/7 through the Skyward Family Access system. Families with no other children in school or those who have not set up a Family Access online account first click on the “new student enrollment account request.” After the account is set up, go to “new student enrollment.”
Families who already have a Skyward Family Access account or those who received a temporary password after setting up the account use the “new student enrollment” button. Online registration is not mobile phone compatible, but a computer is available at schools for this use, and there is one in the administration building at 2715 Lilac Street.
Mark you calendar for March Into Kindergarten on Wednesday, March 27, 5-6:30pm. All district elementary schools will hold an open house to allow families to complete their child’s kindergarten registration by bringing the child’s birth certificate; a shot (immunization) record; and a utility bill, rental agreement, or mortgage statement showing the family’s address. Families can also receive help registering, receive helpful information on school readiness, and have a chance to meet teachers, the principal, and new friends.
