Parents of all children eligible for kindergarten during the 2014-2015 school year should have received and returned the kindergarten pre-registration form by late January. Additional information packets were sent out upon receiving the pre-registration forms. Registration materials are collected and organized at the Administrative office, and building placements will be made after all registration materials have been collected.
Due to recent legislation on minimum age of entry (LB 79-214), students must be 5 years of age prior to August 1st. Exceptions to the new state legislation are granted by Blair Community Schools when a child is ready in all areas of development (cognitive, social and emotional) as demonstrated through formal evaluations. The child must be 5 years of age on or before Oct. 15th to be eligible to apply for early entrance.
Kindergarten visitation and the 2014-15 kindergarten parent meeting will be held on Thursday, May 1st. School assignments, visitation times and additional information will be mailed out in early April. There will be no school for 2013-14 kindergartners on this day.
