Eagle County schools will be hosting kindergarten and new student open houses beginning Wednesday, and continuing through the end of March.

Schools have scheduled open house events during the daytime and evenings, in both English and Spanish. Parents of new kindergarten students will be able to complete most of the registration process online beginning on March 2. Following the online process, parents can take birth certificates, immunization records and proof of residency to their school’s office to complete the process. That can be completed during their open house visit.

Families may choose to enroll their student at a school other than their community school because of their interest in a specialized program, such as dual language, International Baccalaureate programs, expeditionary learning, because of proximity to work or any number of reasons. If parents elect to enroll their students at a school other than their community school, then they must indicate their choice through the open enrollment online forms after completing the initial registration process online.

Acceptance Notification in April

They will be notified by mid-April if space is available at their school of choice. Selection for attendance is based on school capacities, which are determined by building size constraints, staffing needs, community population growth trends, and instructional needs. Every attempt is made to enroll students according to their school choice preferences. Families of students who are open enrolled into a school other than their community school are responsible for all transportation needs for their student.
