Elementary Summer School Sign-Up
Lexington elementary schools offer a high quality summer school program filled with enriching activities for preschool students entering Kindergarten as well as this year's Kindergarten through 4th grade students. Enrollment forms are available with a listing of activities from your child's school. Return the forms as soon as possible to the school office as students won't want to miss the fun!
NEW STUDENTS OF ALL GRADE LEVELS SHOULD ENROLL NOW
All students who will be attending school at Lexington Public Schools for the first time, such as in the case of a preschooler, kindergartener or a student who has transferred to Lexington should enroll as soon as possible at the Lexington Public Schools Administration Building located at 300 S. Washington Street in Lexington, NE.
Early student registration is requested to ensure that students are added to a class list and that a place is reserved for them in their neighborhood school. Early registrations also allow us to receive records, familiarize ourselves with the student, identify any needs, visit with teachers from previous schools, and have materials ready for the first day of school on August 14, 2013.
Parents enrolling their children at Lexington Public Schools for the first time must present a copy of the student's certified birth certificate, immunization records and the address of the last school attended, if applicable. Transfer certificates and/or school records from a previous school help with placement of the student at the appropriate grade level.
All students entering school, at any level, are also required to meet the state's immunization requirements. The requirements vary with age group and transfer origin, but generally include: 3-4 doses of DtaP, DTP or DT, 3 doses of Polio, 1-2 doses of MMR, 3 doses of Hepatitis B, 2 doses of Varicella (if student has not had chickenpox), and for preschoolers 1-3 doses of Hib and 1-4 doses of pneumococcal. Please review your child's record and make sure they have the current immunizations needed for enrollment.

The Children's Crusade by Mrs. Yeutter's Class
Children marched for freedom to have equal rights.
Laws were unfair because it made people live in a segregated world.
Martin Luther King Jr. told the kids not to fight white police, but to march with love and non-violence.
The children were as brave as soldiers who fight for freedom, police who do the right thing, and Guardian Angels who protect their special ones.
Freedom is as important as God's love, integration of all people, and inhaling and exhaling air.
The children won their freedom because they were doing the right thing.
Treating other people, as you want to be treated is always the right way to live.
On Monday, September 10, 2012, the school board approved a change to the excessive absenteeism policy. The updated policy is listed below. Click on the image for a pdf version. Translated versions of this policy can be found on the "Policies" page.
