Kindergarten registration underway

2017-18 preschool registration begins January 18

CASTLE ROCK –This time of year is always an exciting moment in our elementary schools as the parents of soon-to-be preschoolers and kindergartners begin the process of enrolling their little ones.

Kindergarten registration is now being accepted for students who will be five years old by October 1, 2017. Preschool registration begins on January 18 for students who will be three years old by that same date.

Preschool Registration
The Douglas County School District offers high quality and inclusive preschools in 71 classrooms, many of which are located at our neighborhood school locations.

CLICK HERE for information about 2017-18 School Year Preschool Registration, which again will open on Wednesday, January 18, 2017.

Kindergarten Registration
Parents of incoming kindergartners should contact their neighborhood school for specific kindergarten registration requirements. The school should have its registration packet posted on its website. More information about the process is available on our Elementary Education page.

Scholarships are available for full time kindergarten students who qualify for the free and reduced-cost lunch (applications are submitted in July, but qualifications should be similar to the 2016-17 school year).

District News

DCSD is requesting parent input on the health and wellness of our students. Last year, DCSD received a large planning grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC). The mission of this grant is to review the current state of DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices. As part of this process, we would like your input.

How are we doing?

We want to hear from you! How often do you prefer to receive email newsletters from DCSD? How can we improve the news and information you receive? This brief survey should only take a minute or two of your time. Thank you for giving us your input!

Tell us what you think, here!

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
