2019-2020 Kindergarten Registration ONLINE — NEW!

NOTE:  Due to the snow day on March 7, Kindergarten registration will also be held on Thursday, March 21 – 10:00am-4:30pm.

Do you have a child that will start kindergarten next year? Lincoln Public Schools is excited to announce you can register your child when it is convenient for you – before the in person registration days.

Starting on Jan. 1, 2019, parents of children who will start kindergarten in Aug. 2019 can register their child online. Filling out the required paperwork online is an alternative to registering in person at our school on specific designated days in March.

After Jan. 1, parents of children who will turn five years of age before July 31, 2019 will be able to go to lps.org and click on the red “Enroll Your Student” button. Here you will find all the information necessary for registering, the required documents needed and answers to frequently asked questions.

For children who turn five between Aug. 1 through Oct. 15, parents may request an assessment for their child to receive a waiver to attend school early. That information is also located on the kindergarten registration page.

We will still hold in-person registration days for those who wish to register at our school. Parents can stop by our school on March 6 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. or March 7 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to fill out the enrollment information.  Questions about kindergarten registration should be directed to the child’s attendance area school. For more information about kindergarten registration and assessment testing for incoming students, please go to https://home.lps.org/studentservices/enroll-your-student/ .

Welcome to the Elliott Elementary School website. I am honored to be the principal at Elliott working with amazing students and families and a wonderful group of dedicated professionals. Our priority is to provide a high quality education for every student, every day. We are dedicated to inspiring children to become lifelong learners.

At Elliott Elementary School, we provide a safe, orderly and respectful environment that promotes high levels of student engagement and performance. We honor the diversity and unique strengths and talents of each of our students and dedicate our efforts to help them experience individual success.

There are two guiding principles for acceptable behavior at Elliott Elementary: first, it is never okay to be hurtful; and second, it is never okay to be disruptive.
