Kindergarten Roundup

Kindergarten Registration & Address Verification - Spring Schedule

Each April, LCSD1 elementary schools host Kindergarten Round-Up for next year's kindergarten students and their parents. Kindergarten Round-Up provides an opportunity for parents and guardians to register their child and participate in our required annual address verification. It also allows students to visit the school they will attend. Parents/guardians will also be required to bring their pre-kindergarten child back for a 20-minute screening appointment at a later date. Parents and guardians who attend Kindergarten Round-Up will need to bring the following required documents:

  • Child's Birth Certificate (not a copy)
  • Current Immunization Record
  • Proof of Residency (Acceptable forms of verification include light/gas bills and lease agreements. Water and cable bills will not be accepted.
  • Child's Social Security Card (optional)

Please call 307-771-2188 if you have any questions about kindergarten enrollment and registration.
