  • Parents or legal guardians may register children who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2024 using our online registration system which is available by clicking the link below and selecting the NEXT school year (2024-2025) for registration. 

    There will be several documents that will be necessary for you to upload as you complete this process:

    • Immunization Records (most up to date records from pediatrician)
    • Proof of Residency – acceptable documentation includes two (2) of the following:
      • Signed and Dated Lease or Rental Agreement
      • Signed and Dated Sales Agreement

      • Property Tax Payment Receipt
      • Paycheck Stub
      • Voter Registration
      • If you are not the homeowner/lessee or do not have residency documents, please email for assistance. 
    • Documents that may be provided (if applicable): 
      • Court Order, PFA, or Custody Agreement

    Upon successful completion of the online process, each family will be emailed confirmation of their completed registration as well as an appointment time and date for Kindergarten Registration Day.  Your contact information will also be shared with your child’s school to include in future kindergarten registration/orientation communications.  During Kindergarten Registration Day, our incoming kindergarten students will be able to meet kindergarten teachers, our support staff (school counselors, school nurses, speech teachers), see the building, and start the process of becoming a Big Spring Bulldog!  

    Registration Day dates are:

    Mount Rock Elementary - May 8, 2024
    Oak Flat Elementary  - May 10, 2024
    Newville Elementary - May 9, 2024

    It is important to register eligible kindergarten students as promptly as possible. Registration Day appointment times will be assigned only after a completed Kindergarten Registration is received.  Students may not participate in Kindergarten Registration Day without an appointment.  The District Administration Office located at 45 Mount Rock Road is open during the hours of 8:00 am and 2:00 pm for registrations.  Please do not wait until your child turns 5 to start the enrollment process and do not hesitate to enroll even if you are uncertain if you will be sending your 5-year-old student this school year.
