Kindergarten Registration for 2020-2021
Each year the Big Spring School District begins the process of preliminary registration for children in the District who are eligible to attend kindergarten in the upcoming school year. The District will process kindergarten registrations during the months of January, February, and March using an online registration system. If you have a child who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2020, please plan to complete this online registration process as a requirement for scheduling your student’s kindergarten registration which will take place in May.
To access and complete the online registration (Registration Gateway), please visit our website at www.bigspringsd.org and scroll down to the section titled “Kindergarten Registration”. There will be several documents that will be necessary for you to upload as you complete this process:
- Birth Certificate;
- Immunization Records;
- Court Order, PFA, or Custody Agreement if applicable; and
- Two (2) forms of Proof of Residency. (Proof of Residency is a copy of a lease signed by the landowner, sales agreement, current utility bill, mortgage statement, property tax notice, or driver’s license of parent/legal guardian enrolling the student.)
Additional details regarding the process are on the back of this letter. Upon successful completion of the preliminary online registration, each family will be e-mailed confirmation of their scheduled time to attend Kindergarten Registration at one of the elementary buildings. It is during this time that our future kindergarten students will be able to meet kindergarten teachers, see the building, and start the process of becoming a Big Spring Bulldog! Again, dates and times for those events will be given at the completion of the online preliminary registration process.
It is important to register eligible kindergarten students as promptly as possible to be scheduled for an appointment to attend Kindergarten Registration Day in May. 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. We will be available in the evening on Wednesday, March 11 from 3:15 until 7:00 p.m. for additional support with the enrollment process. 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.

Kindergarten Physical Form -- NOTE: The preliminary registration process should be started even if the child has not yet received his or her 5-year old physical.
Please Note: Parents wishing to apply for the Free/Reduced Lunch Program should wait until summer (but prior to the 1st day of school) to complete the application process. Applications for the next school year cannot be processed until after the conclusion of the current school year.
