    Republic Early Childhood Center is now enrolling students for the 2017-18 school year.  We currently have openings in our Monday through Thursday afternoon class and our Monday through Friday half-day classes.  All other classes are on a waiting list.  

    Enrollment is first-come, first-served.  A completed Intent to Attend form along with a $30 non-refundable enrollment fee is required to secure a spot in the program (cash, check, or money order-no credit cards accepted). Enrollment will continue until all spots are filled.   Once all spots are filled, a completed Intent to Attend form will place your child on the waiting list.

    Preschool class offerings are based upon the child's date of birth as well as class structure and skill focus. Please review the class descriptions prior to the enrollment date.

District Announcements

  • Request for Updated Contact Information by July 1

    *This is NOT applicable to incoming kindergarten families as their information is already current. 
    In an effort to best prepare bus routes and stops for the upcoming school year we ask that all families review the address and contact information that they have provided to the district to confirm it is correct. Please login to the Parent Portal (click on the "Parent Portal" icon above OR the URL is https://sdm.sisk12.com/RB/Default.aspx?Action=Parent) with the email address you have provided to the district. If you do not remember your password, select the "forgot password" button and a new password will be emailed to you. 
    Once logged in, be sure the "Home" tab is selected and then click on the "Family Data" option. Review the data listed and should you have updated information to submit, click on the EDIT button on the left side of your screen. 
    From there you will be taken to a screen where you can update the necessary pieces and then at the top click on "Submit Changes for School to Update Their Records." The edits will then be sent to school officials to confirm. 
    The Transportation Department will be sending bus stop information to families the first week of August via mail and email. We ask that you take time to update/confirm your contact information by July 1 so appropriate adjustments can be made. Thank you for your help with this matter!
