Preschool Registration

At this time, registration for the 2021-2022 school year is full for typical students. If your student has special needs, please contact the school to be evaluated. 

Because we have a limited number of spots available for Preschool, we will be utilizing a lottery system for new preschool registrations for the 2022-2023 school year.  If your preschool student is new to the district, please complete the Preschool Lottery form between January 26, 2022  and February 4, 2022.  

Families will be notified of placement via email (into program or on waitlist) by February 9, 2022.

If you are notified of placement into the program, the legal guardian of the student MUST complete the online registration form and attend an in-person registration appointment by February 18, 2021. No Exceptions.  Students on the waitlist will fill open spots as a result of missed deadlines.  A $70 registration fee is due at your appointment.  

Registration Lottery Dates: January 26th, 2022- February 3rd, 2022
Registration Appointment Dates : February 9th, 2022-February 18th, 2022

School Delay Schedule

Bowman School Delay Schedule

In the event of a 2-hour delay, there will be no AM Preschool and no AM Kindergarten.   PM Preschool and PM Kindergarten students will report at their regular start time for the afternoon session (1:00PM - 3:45PM). Buses will run as scheduled.  Kindergarten and  Kindergarten ELL students will report to school on the same 1 hour or 2 hour delay schedule as the 1st and 2nd graders (see school delay schedule in the Student Handbook).

Safe School Hotline

The Board of Education is committed to providing a safe, positive, productive and nurturing educational environment for all of its students.  The Board encourages the promotion of positive interpersonal relationships between members of the school community.

Although we encourage open communication between students and staff, we also understand some students may feel more comfortable reporting a concern anonymously.  For this reason, we offer a SAFE SCHOOL HOTLINE at 513-934-1167.  

This phone number allows a student or parent to report a concern.  This line is checked daily for messages.
