School District 54 announces that kindergarten registration for the 2011-12 school year will be held on Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011. Registration will take place from 9-11 a.m.,
1-2:30 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at all elementary schools. Parents should go to their neighborhood school to register their child, even if they are applying to attend a school other than their neighborhood school.
Only those children whose fifth birthday falls on or before Sept. 1, 2011, are eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the fall term, 2011.
Parents should bring the child’s official birth certificate (with the seal); a $50 check or money order to pay the consumable materials fee; and three forms of proof of residency within School District 54 boundaries.
There is a $50 consumable materials fee, which District 54 assesses each student to offset the cost of items supplied by the district during the course of the school year. Payment of this fee in the form of a check or money order will also be collected at registration.
The registration process takes about 30 minutes. Parents will fill out entrance materials, and will be given physical examination forms and general school information. It would be helpful to bring the name and phone numbers of people to call in an emergency and phone numbers of the parents’ workplaces.
More information and some of the registration forms can be found on our website at http://sd54.org/registration/.
District officials can better plan for kindergarten placements if they get most of the registrations on Feb. 24, so parents are urged to register their children for kindergarten on that date. For transportation/boundary questions: call (847) 357-5104. For general questions: call (847) 357-5087.
