Eligibility requirements for Kindergarten have changed!
Parents should note the following changes in age requirements:
  • If your child will be five years old on or before August 1, 2017, he or she is eligible for kindergarten. You may register your child on Feb. 7 or 8 at the school they will attend in the fall.
  • The change in the age requirement is the result of a change in state law.
  • If your child will turn five years old between August 2 and October 1, 2017 you may apply for early admission. To do so, complete the required forms online at this link: or stop by the central office to pick up the application. Next, a screening will be scheduled. Based on results of the screening, children who are considered “ready” will be considered eligible for early admission.
We are hosting an earlier Kindergarten registration for the 2017 fall semester.

At Bridgeport, "Manners Matter"
Students from Bridgeport Elementary School recently celebrated their selection as "most well-mannered" at Wendy's on the west side of Frankfort. Bridgeport and the local Wendy's franchise have partnered to create "Manners Matter," a program to encourage, reward and reinforce manners and respect while at school. Every homeroom teacher at Bridgeport selects one student each month for recognition. The students are then taken to Wendy's for a sit-down, white-tablecloth lunch.
