KINDERGARTEN / PRESCHOOL REGISTRATION

Downloadable PDF Flyer

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, please note that school placement may not be determined until late summer 2020 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 24, 2020.  Registration will take place at each Gering Elementary Building:

Geil Elementary | 1600 D Street, Gering  |  308.436.2545

Lincoln Elementary  |  1725 13th Street, Gering |  308.436.2350

Northfield Elementary  |  1900 Flaten Avenue, Gering |  308.436.5555

If you have a child to enroll in Preschool, please visit Lincoln Elementary School at 1735 13th Street or call 308.436.2350. They will provide families with  additional information regarding the Preschool enrollment process.

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

  • Proof of Residency (i.e., drivers license, utility bill, etc.)
  • 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 within 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!
