4th & 5th Grade Track Meet

Welcome to Lexington Public Schools

Lexington and the Lexington Public Schools are committed to providing quality of life and education to our growing and diverse population. We respect and celebrate the opportunities and are encouraged by the good things that are happening. Our mission statement is, "To develop capable and responsible lifelong learners. With the cooperation of family, school and community, we will prepare students for the global challenges and the opportunities of the future."

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, to allow us to receive records, familiarize ourselves with the student, identify any needs and have materials ready for the first day of school on August 17, 2016.   

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.

Prospective preschoolers entering Lexington Public Schools for the 2016-2017 school year must be 4 years old on or before July 31, 2016.  Prospective Kindergarteners entering Lexington Public Schools for the 2016-2017 school year must be 5 years old on or before July 31, 2016.

For further information please contact Hardy Moreno or Barre Hassan at the Lexington Public Schools Administration Building or call 324-1211 or 324-1217.  Please find Spanish and English registration packets online at:  http://www.lexschools.org/district-information/registration

PowerSchool Single Sign On

Lexington Public Schools will be updating our PowerSchool Student Information System Parent Portal to a single sign on program effective November 20, 2015. This will allow parents/guardians with more than one child to access all of their child(ren)'s information at one time with one login and password. Both Parents can have their own account but each account will need a separate email address. You will be able to view all your child(ren)'s up to the minute attendance, grades, assignments, school bulletins, and messages from teachers.

Letters were mailed to each student's parent/guardian with step-by-step instructions on how to set up your parent account.  If you should have questions, please contact your child(ren)'s school building.
