Kindergarten registration will be held on Feb. 12
District 54 will hold kindergarten registration for the 2015-16 school year on Thursday, Feb. 12. 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 another school. (Lincoln Prairie is not a neighborhood school). A child whose fifth birthday falls on or before Sept. 1, 2015, is eligible to enroll in kindergarten in 2015. District 54 follows the Illinois regulations and does not admit students whose birth date is after Sept. 1. The registration packet for new students includes the Student Enrollment Form, Family Census Form, Proof of Residency Form, Home Language Survey and a $50 Consumable Materials Fee. The parent or guardian must also provide the following information to complete the enrollment process:
- Proof of immunizations
- Birth Certificate (original with seal). Official birth certificates are issued by the county clerk in the county in which the child was born. Hospital certificates are not acceptable.
- Phone numbers of people to be contacted in emergencies (neighbors, other family members and work numbers)
- Proof of residence
More information on what parents need to bring to registration and how to prove residency, as well as some of the forms, can be found on our website at http://sd54.org/registration/.
