How to Enroll (first time in school)
We keep a list of our incoming kindergarten students through a census and families informing us when they move into our district. In late winter / early spring we contact all incoming new students about steps for enrolling; Kindergarten Roundup occurs in the spring and involves a parent and student visit to the school.
Have you filled out our 0-5 year old census? If you have a child age 0-5, please fill out the census information HERE to help us keep our records as accurate as possible
How to Enroll (from another district)
Families living within the Richland #44 School District attendance boundaries are welcome to enroll their children with a few simple steps.
Open enrollment allows for families living outside of the Richland #44 Public School District attendance boundaries to apply for acceptance at a Richland #44 school.
The deadline to submit an application for consideration of Open Enrollment is the end of the last day working day of February (i.e., February 28, 2023 for the 2023-2024 school year).
