Our district is committed to providing excellent educational opportunities for all students in each of the three elementary schools.  It is our hope that attending school in Gering will be rewarding and a fulfilling experience for you and your child!

A student's educational success is directly related to a small teacher-student class ratio.  To that end, a small kindergarten class size is necessary.  When enrolling your child in kindergarten, school placement will not be determined until late summer 2019 at which time you will be notified by the building principals.  Kindergarten class size in each building, siblings attending that elementary school and household addresses will be considered when placing kindergarten students.  For general placement guidelines, the district attendance area map can be viewed here. 

Kindergarten enrollment will begin February 25, 2019.  Registration will take place at the District Office located downtown Gering  (1519 10th Street - across from First State Bank).  Enrollment packets are available at our District Office and all elementary buildings as well as here:  

Kindergarten Enrollment Packet - Downloadable PDF

Kindergarten Readiness Booklet - Downloadable PDF

If you have a child to enroll in Preschool, please visit Lincoln Elementary School  (1725 13th Street)  where they will provide additional information regarding the enrollment process.

Per State of Nebraska statues and District Board Policy, the following documentation is required for all student enrollments:

  • Proof of Residency 
    (IE. Any postmarked mail or government issued identification reflecting the current household address)
  • Certified Birth Certificate
  • Immunization Records

***Please note, all Kindergarten students are required to have a physical and vision evaluation prior to starting school.  To be considered current, exams must be completed with 6 months of the student's first day of school.  When applicable, religious or medical waivers are available within the registration packet.***  

We look forward to a successful educational relationship with you and your child.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact one of us!

Educationally yours,
