We are excited to announce that 4K registration for the 2021-2022 school year in the School District of South
Milwaukee is now open!  Any student that will be four years old on or before September 1, 2021 is eligible to register
for 4K.  If a child in your home will turn four by that date, we encourage you to register now.  If you know a family
that has a child that could attend 4K next school year, please forward this letter to them.
4K in South Milwaukee is a district-wide program.  That means a 4K student may go to any of our four elementary
schools, regardless of your neighborhood or address.  All student return to neighborhood schools for 5K-5th grade
based on your address. For the 2021-22 school year, South Milwaukee has expanded its options for 4K.
The school District of South Milwaukee offers several options for 4K:
  • All-day 4K - This is 8:30-3:35 Monday through Thursday and will be offered only at Rawson and Lakeview Elementary Schools. There is limited availability for spots in our all-day 4K.
  • Half-day 4K - This is offered only at Blakewood and E. W. Luther Elementary Schools. AM 4K is from 8:30-11:40 and PM 4K is from 12:25-3:25 Monday through Thursday.
  • Half-day 4K with wraparound care provided by the South Milwaukee Rec Department. This would allow your child to have 4K for half of the day and daycare for the other half of the day (same as the half-day times and days above). If you need this option, your child will automatically attend 4K at Blakewood Elementary. Wraparound care is a fee-based service that will require a separate registration with the SM Rec Department prior to the school year starting. There is no daycare on Fridays.
If there are more families indicating a preference for all-day 4K than there are available spots, a lottery will be held in early June. If you have an older child (5K-5th grade), your 4K child may be assigned a different school based on your 4K preference. We recognize that this is inconvenient, and our schools will work with you on drop-off and pick-up times.

Questions about 4K registration may be sent to Chris Sepersky, principal of Lakeview Elementary, at 
Thank you!
