Plan for a successful transition ...
When transitioning to a new school, it is always helpful to keep in mind a few things to make that transition easier for your child.
- Please contact the Lewistown Public Schools as far in advance of your move as possible and visit with the administrative secretary at the Lincoln Building regarding specific registration considerations.
- Consider transitioning as near to the beginning of a term as possible.
How do I enroll my child in school?
Copies of your child's birth certificate and immunization records must be received by the school BEFORE your child can enroll in Lewistown Public Schools. The immunization records are then reviewed by the School Nurse and you will be notified if any additional shots are required.
The next step is for a parent, legal guardian, or legal custodian to fill out an enrollment form for each Household. All students in grades K-12 living in that household who plan to attend Lewistown Schools should be listed. Those forms are available in the Enrollment Forms article below.
Immunizations & Birth Certificate
Copies of your child's Birth Certificate and Immunization Records must be received by the school before your child may enroll in Lewistown Public Schools. The immunization records are then reviewed by the School Nurse and you will be notified if any additional shots are required.

Exemptions or conditional attendance procedures are allowed, but must include documentation and forms from the state.
