Breckenridge’s East Elementary will have a New Student Registration day on Tuesday, June 23, for students in pre-kindergarten through second grade who are new to the district. For those who cannot register on Tuesday, another registration day will be held on Aug. 6.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the school has implemented an online registration process for parents to complete before meeting with enrollment staff. After filling out the online form, parents will need to visit the school on Tuesday, June 23,  or Thursday, Aug. 6.

Parents who do not fill out the online forms will be allowed in the building to complete registration on June 23 or Aug. 6 but should expect long lines and unpredictable wait times, according to information from East Elementary.

Only the student(s) being registered and one parent or guardian will be allowed in the building during the enrollment process.

On Tuesday, parents/guardians must sign in at the front door and then wait in their vehicle until called in by staff to complete registration. East Elementary asks that parents or guardians only register incoming new-to-the-district students at this time; registration for returning students will occur at a later date.

To register their children for the 2020-2021 school year, parents/guardians must create an account on Skyward using the link provided on East Elementary’s website in the Enrollment section.

  • Social Security card
  • Immunization records – Immunization Requirements/Information
  • Proof of residency
  • Identification of enrolling parent or guardian
