Pre-K Registration Information (for 2021-2022 school year)


    Online Pre-K pre-registration is now closed. Online registration for pre-kindergarten will open in mid-July. This includes State-based Half Day and State-based Full Day Pre-K registration. Eligible children will be FOUR years of age on/before September 1, 2021, and reside in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD area.

    If you are not sure about what campus to go to for Pre-Kindergarten, follow these two steps to find out:

    • First, find out what schools your home is zoned for by searching for your street name in our 2021-2022 School Boundary Locator.
    • Second, look at our Pre-K Schools feeder list. Under the listing for the school your home is zoned for, we list the schools you would attend for Pre-K or Bilingual Pre-K. (The school where you would attend Pre-K is the school where you should register for Pre-K.)


     Note: Core Knowledge Pre-K parents will attend elementary new student registration instead of Pre-K registration. For more information, visit our Core Knowledge Pre-K website.
