A warm welcome to next year’s Overland Trail Elementary kindergartners! If you have an older child who has attended OTE, you know first-hand the many great things that happen at our school. If this is your first child coming to us, please know they will be cared for, they will be valued and they will grow tremendously academically and socially. Our staff is exceptional, and we will be with you every step of the way. Please see the accompanying information and do not hesitate to reach out if we can help in any way.
We are so excited to see your student!

Step 1: Do you have questions about kindergarten programs in Blue Valley? (Click on the links below)
- What do kindergarten students experience during a typical day?
- What opportunities are provided within Virtual Education?
- How can I learn about the Chinese immersion option?
Step 2: Is there another language spoken in your home?
If so, please complete this form. Otherwise, move to step 4.
Step 3: How do I register my child?
To begin the registration process for the school year, simply go to www.bluevalleyk12.org/registration and click New Student Registration in the Useful Links.
Families new to Blue Valley will be asked to create an online parent account. Online registration will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and it is an important step in getting your student started for kindergarten!
During the elementary registration process, you will be asked to select the instructional setting for your kindergarten child (in-person or virtual). You will be asked to pay fees later this spring.
Please note: if your child is currently enrolled in the Blue Valley early childhood program, you will not complete online registration at this time. Families transitioning from early childhood to kindergarten will have an opportunity to verify the information and complete the registration process later this spring.
To make Blue Valley's Online Registration process smooth and convenient, please have the following information available:
- Student proof of identity (birth certificate, passport or VISA)
