Good afternoon, For clarification, if your child already attends Blennerhassett PreK and you want them to attend kindergarten at BES, you will not have to come to register them tomorrow during kindergarten registration. Our office will send home paperwork this week for all current pre-k students to return to register for kindergarten. We ask that you please return the paperwork as soon as possible. Thank you and we're sorry for any misunderstandings that anyone may have had.

Tina Lowers JAN 05, 2024 Pre-K and Kindergarten registration dates will be slightly different this year due to the implementation of the State's new open enrollment policy. We will begin Kindergarten registration starting Tuesday, February 20. That will allow Kindergarten parents to complete the online open enrollment request (beginning January 16) before they actually register at the school. Kindergarten parents/guardians must still complete the registration process at their HOME school, even if they have requested an out-of-district placement. Since the online open enrollment window closes Friday, March 1, ideally, parents can complete the open enrollment request AND register their child for Kindergarten, having the entire process completed by March 1. (TO BE CLEAR—parents/guardians may still register students for Kindergarten anytime from February 20 to the end of the school year—or beyond, if necessary.) Pre-K registration will begin Monday, March 4. Since Pre-k registration is already based upon an open enrollment concept, and students are placed individually, Pre-k parents/guardians WILL NOT participate in the online open enrollment portal required for all K-12 students. Pre-K registration will occur as it typically has. We hope to enroll as many Pre-K students as possible the week of March 4 - March 8, but enrollment will continue through the end of the school year and beyond, if necessary.
