Kindergarten registration for the Douglas County School System will begin Monday, May 1, 2017. Parents/legal guardians may register upcoming kindergarten students at the Murray Educational Center - Central Registration located at 4841 Highway 5 (the former Bill Arp Elementary school site). Kindergarten registration will be available each day, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Parents/legal guardians must register at the Central Registration Center before a student is enrolled in their home school. 

In an effort to accommodate the various work schedules of parents/guardians, the Central Registration Center will hold extended hours for all students entering a Douglas County kindergarten for the first time on the following dates:  

Saturday, May 13, 2017: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. 

Thursday, May 18, 2017:  8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

Tuesday, May 23, 2017:  8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  

Please take advantage of these times to avoid the crowds during the summer.
