Enrollment

Around 40% of SIE students attend on contract from outside our attendance zone. Shreve Island accepts contract students each year based on available space. The contract outlines expectations for students and parents.

 

It takes a village of supportive parents to make a successful school. We are looking for the next generation of committed families that will get involved in making our school the best it can be. Together we really can help every child reach his or her potential. 

 

Kindergarten Enrollment

Each year we accept around fifty new Kindergarten students on contract from outside our attendance zone. Priority is given to Kindergartners with siblings already attending SIE. After registration, we schedule our new Kindergarten applicants for placement testing.  We mail out our acceptance letters the same time the Magnet Schools on the Friday before Spring Break. 

 

Those that are not accepted initially are placed on a waiting list.  In the weeks after the mailings, we confirm with all accepted families to determine if we have additional space and can add from the waiting list.   

Children should be 5 years old by September 30th to enroll in Kindergarten.

Families living in the Shreve Island attendance zone may come to the office at any time and day to register their child for the 2019-2020 school year.  Enter your address in the district bus route finder here to confirm your districtFor planning purposes, we appreciate your getting them registered as soon as possible.
