Key Registration Information

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, 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

Per State of Nebraska statutes 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!
