School Choice for Returning Families

Returning families of ECE4-4th graders will automatically be re-enrolled at Lincoln. Families of current ECE3 and 5th graders need to fill out SchoolChoice. Once confirmed, all returning families will need to complete the registration steps below.

Montessori 5th Grade: Select “Lincoln Montessori 6th Grade” as your first choice.

Registration for New and Returning Families

Registration enables DPS and Lincoln to track enrollment and confirm financial, medical and personal information for our families. All families, new and returning, need to complete Registration before the beginning of each school year.

New Families: once Lincoln has been confirmed as your child’s school through the SchoolChoice process, you will need to complete the registration steps below.

Families New to the Neighborhood

If you’ve just moved into the neighborhood or did not complete a SchoolChoice application, please call us at 720-424-5990 or visit DPS’s enrollment website.

To Register, please complete the following:

STEP 1: Online Registration and Immunization

Register and Verify Information

Each year new and returning families need to register their child through their Parent Portal account. After logging in, click on See All Apps, then Online Registration. If you completed this step earlier in the summer, you do not need to do it again. 

Immunization Records

Please upload your child’s immunization record or waiver when prompted during the Online Registration process. New students MUST submit an immunization record before they begin school. If you are unable to upload your child’s immunization record during Online Registration, please call us to coordinate an alternate submission method. 

Helpful Registration Tips

  • Online registration is not mobile-friendly. Please use a computer or call us if you need a paper form. 
  • Only the primary parent/guardian registered in your student’s school record can complete online registration.
  • To create a Parent Portal account, use this guide.

STEP 2: School Meals

All students in DPS will have access to free healthy, nutritious school meals beginning in the 2023-24 school year thanks to the Healthy School Meals for All program approved by Colorado voters! While meals will be provided for free to all DPS students through Healthy School Meals for All, families will still need to complete a form to ensure DPS gets full access to available federal funding.

STEP 3: Option for Additional Childcare and Enrichments

If you are looking for childcare before and/or after school, visit the Discovery Link website to learn about and register for our program (offered 6:30am-6:00pm).

Lincoln offers a variety of after-school enrichments, which run for 45min-1hr after school. Offerings change each year and enrollment windows vary. Check out our current enrichment offerings here.

STEP 5: ECE Registration Forms

ECE-4 families are required by the Colorado Department of Education to complete additional registration forms befoECE families are required by the Colorado Department of Education to complete additional registration forms before their child can begin school. This is only for families with ECE students: skip this step if you do not have a child in ECE3 or ECE4.

Where to get ECE Registration forms:

  • When DPS updates ECE forms (usually in June or July) you can find them here. Scroll down the page and, on the right side, you’ll see “ECE Parent Forms” with the upcoming year. 
  • You will also receive these ECE forms from your child’s teacher before the beginning of school. 
  • Forms may be submitted to your child’s teacher or the front office – via hard copy or email – and must be received before your ECE student attends school.
  • If you need help filling out or obtaining any forms, please stop by the  Main Office or give us a ring.

Filling out the forms

  • Be sure to fill out and return the following:
    • Preschool Child Interest Survey (pages 4-6)
    • DPS Early Childhood Family Survey (pages 7-8)
    • Parent/Guardian Information & Permissions (pages 9-15)
    • Immunization records received from your child’s doctor (we apologize for the redundancy with Registration, but this is required for compliance with District ECE laws)
  • Note that health forms must be signed by your child’s doctor and submitted within 30 days of the start of school, so please plan ahead!

Forms may be submitted to your child’s teacher or the front office via hard copy or email.

ECE Tuition

Unlike elementary, our ECE preschool program is tuition-based. Rates are calculated on a sliding scale which means that, depending upon the circumstances, families could pay less or even nothing for preschool at Lincoln. To estimate the cost of ECE in advance, visit the DPS Tuition Rates and Assistance website. Based on their income, some families may also receive childcare discounts. Understanding these benefits can sometimes be tricky – please get in touch with the front office if you need help navigating tuition. We are always here to support our families.

School Supplies

New this year, school supplies will be collected centrally rather than having student’s individually  purchase supplies. The hope is that by changing the way in which we ask for supplies ALL students will have the materials they need for learning. 

Teachers indicated the materials they need for instruction. All school supplies will be distributed equitably across classrooms the first week of school. Shop here.
