To review school boundaries, check the district’s website at http://www.carsoncityschools.com and click on “School Zones” under the “Parents” tab or view the CCSD SchoolSite Locator on the district’s website.

Parents are invited to visit their child’s prospective school in person between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to provide the following required documents to register: birth certificate, immunization records (including hepatitis A and B, DTAP, MMR, IPV and varicella — contact your physician’s office to ensure compliance for school) and proof of residency in Carson City (utility bill, mortgage or rental papers, voter registration, etc.).

Additionally, children who will be 4 years old by Sept. 30 and whose family qualifies under the federal household poverty guidelines can apply for the district’s pre-kindergarten program for the 2019-20 school year. There is limited space for pre-kindergarten students zoned for the following schools: Bordewich Bray, Empire, Fremont and Mark Twain Elementary schools. At this time, Fritsch and Al Seeliger schools will not be accepting pre-kindergarten applications.

Applications for pre-K in Carson City can be submitted beginning March 11 at 604 W. Musser St., Carson City, Nev. 89703. Click on “Pre-K” under the “Parents” tab on the district’s website. Parents should direct any pre-K inquiries to Katie McDowell at 775-283-1509.
