Incoming kindergarteners, families invited to virtual orientation events
Like many events in the past year, kindergarten kickoff events at Oregon Trail schools will be virtual this spring.
Starting April 1, parents with children who will turn 5 on or before Aug. 31 are invited to enroll their students for next fall, meet teachers and learn some kindergarten prep activities.

The schedule for the kindergarten kickoff events is as follows:
• Firwood Elementary: 6 p.m. Thursday, April 1.
• Naas Elementary: 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 6.

Registration for these online events is required. To register, go to the district website. If you are brand new to the Oregon Trail School District, there is a link for "Brand New Parents To Oregon Trail School District." From there click "I am a Parent," then from the login screen, click "More Options." Finally, click "Create a New Account" and follow steps to create your new ParentVUE account.
