Kindergarten Registration


For parents not able to register online Lincoln Public Schools will hold two days of registration in the schools for students who will begin kindergarten the following fall. During registration the paperwork necessary for enrollment in Lincoln Public Schools will be completed. Registration is held at all elementary schools.

Kindergarten Assessment Testing

At this time we are postponing all registration for kindergarten assessment until further notice.

In accordance with Nebraska statute, students may enter kindergarten if they turn five years of age on or before July 31. However, if your child was born between August 1 and October 15, he or she is eligible to participate in an assessment conducted by Lincoln Public Schools to determine possible early entrance to kindergarten.

You can obtain an application from your neighborhood school starting April 1, 2020. You need to fill out an application and register for the assessment with the neighborhood school at least one week prior to the beginning of each round of testing. Application, and certified birth certificate will be due at the time of the registration. The birth certificate will be copied and returned. There is no charge.

Testing will take place at Eastridge Elementary, 6245 L Street
