Welcome to White Bear
We are excited to welcome families and let them check out our buildings and programs in person. If you are interested in touring any of our district elementaries, contact the school and we will personalize a tour at a time that works best for you. School contact information can be found here. Those families who have not already done so may register their child(ren) for kindergarten at the school tours.

In the fall of 2023, the district will implement Phase 2 of the attendance boundaries process that began during the 2022-23 school year. These boundaries changes were made in order to accommodate student enrollment and best utilize new/expanded facilities made possible by the community’s support of the 2019 bond referendum that provided funding for building needs across the district. Find information about the boundary changes here.

Kindergarten Gathering
Students will have a chance to meet the kindergarten teachers and tour their schools at in-person events planned at the district’s elementary buildings later this spring.
