Kindergarten Enrollment Now Open for the 2022-2023 School Year

Kearney School District is ready to welcome the Class of 2035

Kindergarten enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year launches on Tuesday, Feb. 1. If you have a child who will be age five on or before July 31, 2022, this is time to get your child enrolled.

Once you have registered your child for kindergarten, you will then schedule a kindergarten screening. The kindergarten screening tells us what your child already knows before classes start in the fall. Our goal is to provide valuable support for parents/guardians as they help their children prepare to enter kindergarten. This screening will serve as an important resource which will help you know what essential skills to work on during the spring and summer. This preparation will help your child hit the ground running from day one when school starts.

You and your child will meet with one of our Parents As Teachers Parent Educators as part of this kindergarten screening process. These screenings can be done in-person or virtually. The Parent Educator’s role is to give parents/guardians ideas and tools to help with any areas of concern. It is important to know that there is not a score the child must achieve in order to go to kindergarten. The screening ensures that we are best prepared to provide the educational experiences your child needs to thrive.

The Parent Educator will also walk you through what the transition to school looks like and help ease concerns you may have as well as answer questions. You may also call your child’s school and speak with a principal if you have additional questions.

Your child’s elementary school will be hosting a kindergarten orientation before the first day of school this fall. Orientation is an opportunity for families to receive helpful information about KSD, tour their school and meet their child’s teachers and building principal. We will provide you with more details as they are finalized. We’re excited to welcome the Bulldogs’ Class of 2035!
