LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lincoln Public Schools announced Thursday that the city’s newest high school has opened its enrollment.

Standing Bear High School, near 68th Street and Saltillo Road, will open next fall.

The school is now accepting high school choice forms, as the district allows students to attend any school.

Interested students will need to fill out the form as soon as possible and turn it in to their school counselor.

Officials said students who submit the form after Jan. 31 may be denied a transfer.

Turning in those forms early allows administrators to start planning classes and staffing, according to LPS.

Families are invited to learn more about Standing Bear and the school’s business focus program at an event at Moore Middle School at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 19.

More information on the event can be found at home.lps.org/prepare.

Students interested in athletics and activities will need to notify the school’s athletic director by May 1 of their intent to transfer, officials said.

LPS said the school’s varsity offerings will be determined based on student interest and enrollment.

Standing Bear and LPS have already decided that the school will forgo a varsity football team next season.

But junior varsity, reserve and freshmen teams at the school will have full schedules, according to LPS.

Earlier this year, Lincoln’s other new high school, Northwest, canceled its varsity football season in September.
