Welcome to Elkhart Community Schools, Class of 2031!

Welcome to Elkhart Community Schools! We’re excited to meet you and welcome you to the ECS family!

All 14 elementary schools will be open on the evening of April 12 for incoming families to tour. At the Open House, students will have the opportunity to climb on a school bus, meet school staff, and see their classrooms. Parents can complete registration, learn about before/after care, and meet PTO members. This is a great chance for children and parents to tour their school and meet school staff.

New this year: online kindergarten registration (now open)! Complete most paperwork online to save time!

  • English Registration (KINDERGARTEN ONLY!)
  • Spanish Registration (KINDERGARTEN ONLY!)
  • Please note: All registrations will require a visit to the school to complete enrollment – please bring your child’s birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of residency.

If you would prefer to register in person, kindergarten registration packets are available at all fourteen elementary schools, starting April 9. When you have completed the packet, please bring it to the school, along with your child’s birth certificate, immunization records, and your proof of residency/address. We encourage you to bring your incoming kindergarten student with you to familiarize him or her with the school building and staff.
