    Registration

    Kindergarten registration for 2021-22 begins online February 18, 2021

    The initial registration period for children who will be five years old on or before August 31 will begin on February 18, 2021 and extend through March 1, 2021. Registration for all K-12 LWSD students is online. All necessary documents can be accessed on the LWSD website and completed documents can be uploaded securely. Parents who are unable to upload documents may send them to the school by U.S. mail or contact the school to arrange a safe drop off.

    Important: While K-12 student registration will continue throughout the school year and summer, parents are highly encouraged to register students as soon as possible. Doing so helps LWSD to ensure that class sizes are balanced and adequate staff are hired in time for the new school year.

    New student registration is now available online!  

    Please see below for the forms and information for registration.

    If you need assistance with registration during the summer, please email registrar@lwsd.org.
