Garfield School District Re-2 has officially opened the online kindergarten enrollment portal at

The registration portal can also be found on the Garfield Re-2 website at Registration information is available in both English and Spanish. 

Traditionally, parents and guardians are asked to complete the online portion and then finalize the registration process with an in-person follow-up meeting to provide supporting documentation. This year, families are encouraged to upload all of their supporting documentation via the online portal. School secretaries will contact registered families to follow up regarding their prospective kindergarten student.

Schools may also be holding in-person kindergarten meet-and-greets once the physical distancing requirements are lifted. Individual schools will be reaching out with information if and when these dates are secured.
