  • Kindergarten Registration February 5, 2020

    District 54 will hold kindergarten registration for the 2020-21 school year on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2020.

    Registration at Anne Fox will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.

    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. (Lincoln Prairie is not a neighborhood school). Residents who are unsure of their neighborhood school can can click on the Find My School tool under Popular Links on the  District 54 website – sd54.org.

    If your child is currently enrolled at the District 54 Early Learning Center and will be going to kindergarten next year, you do not need to register your child at this time. District 54 offers a free full-day kindergarten program at all of our elementary schools, although options are available for students to attend a half-day program.

    A child whose fifth birthday falls on or before Sept. 1, 2020 is eligible to enroll in kindergarten in 2020.

    To expedite the registration process, families are encouraged to register online prior to Feb. 5.  If you have a student currently enrolled in District 54, you can register through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account.  If you do not have your login, please contact your child’s school.

    Families new to District 54 can register through our Online Registration link.   In either case, parents or guardians will still need to visit their school to present the documentation listed below and sign documents to complete the registration.

    Registration Procedures

    Parents or legal guardians must provide the following information to complete the enrollment process at their neighborhood school.

    • Printed confirmation of online registration
    • 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.
    • Proof of residence (details listed below)

    Proof of Residence

    Families new to District 54 must provide documented proof of their residence within the boundaries of School District 54 at the time of kindergarten registration.  Current District 54 families will provide this documentation when registering their current students for the 2020-2021 school year. All documents must be current, valid for 2020-21, and reflect names and addresses within the boundaries of District 54.

    Parents or guardians must provide a copy of at least one of the following documents:

    • the most recent real estate tax bill for the residence showing the owner as the taxpayer,
    • a signed lease for the residence including a beginning and end date, or
    • a closing statement for the purchase of the residence.

    They must also provide a copy of at least two of the following documents reflecting a home address within District 54 boundaries:

    • Illinois driver’s license,
    • gas, water, electric, internet, television, telephone bill or letter confirming service connection,
    • public assistance documentation,
    • voter registration card,
    • home or vehicle insurance certificate,
    • Illinois automobile registration, or
    • receipt for local city vehicle sticker where applicable.

    Any person asserting legal custody over a student, who is not the student’s parent or legal guardian, must provide current documentation from a court supporting the student custody arrangement.

    Consumable Materials Fees

    Parents or guardians are required to pay a $50 consumable materials fee per student prior to the start of the school year. Payments can be made by credit card through your Parent Portal account or by check or money order at the child’s school. This fee covers the cost of workbooks, paper, art supplies and other items used by students.

    For those students who may qualify for special education services in the district, the parents may be referred to our Special Education Department.

    District 54 officials can better plan for kindergarten placements if they get most of the registrations on Feb. 5, 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 Anne Fox School at 630-736-3500.

    • Parking Lot:​​​​​​
      • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Due to the limited number of parking spots for staff we encourage parents to refrain from parking in the lot during arrival and dismissal
      • To ensure​​​​​​​ our bus riders are safe, we ask that there are no moving cars in the parking lot when during arrival and dismissal
      • Fox Staff will be enforcing these guidelines

    Parents picking up their children need to utilize the sidewalks. For safety reasons we cannot have anyone walking through the parking lot

    Thank you for your co-operation to ensure our Drop and Go runs safe and smooth.

    Dear Anne Fox Community,
    ​​​​​​​
    Our priority at Anne Fox is to ensure students are safe. This includes arrival and dismissal time.

This will eliminate students being dropped off on side streets and dangerous intersections. We appreciate your cooperation with this important matter.

    Parent Survey
    Once again we are reaching out to our families and asking you to participate in the annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey to provide us with your perspective and help guide our school improvement efforts. The parent survey will be available online through Feb. 14, 2020, at https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois

    The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and is available in English and Spanish. Note: the survey will time out and you will need to start over if you don’t finish in one sitting. If you have more than one child, you may complete the survey for each child. You will be asked to select your county and then your child’s school. Be aware that there are often schools with the same or similar names in the state of Illinois.

    The state is not providing hard copies of this survey. If you do not have access to a computer, you can visit the Schaumburg Township District Library or call your child’s school and we will let you use a computer at the school to take the survey.

    The survey is administered by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago on behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education. If at least 20 percent of parents at a school complete the survey, a supplemental parent report will be generated and shared with schools. We are hoping to meet the target this year in our schools.

    Is My Child Too Sick To Go To School?
    A common dilemma that parents face is “when should I keep my child home from school?”  It’s not easy as parents more and more today are juggling the responsibilities of family and work.   Here are some guidelines to follow.

     Know the difference between a cold and the flu:

    • Flu is a serious illness and symptoms include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, headache, or muscle aches.  With the flu, symptoms come on very quickly. It is advised to contact the doctor if these symptoms are present.
    • Symptoms of a common cold include stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, and hacking cough.  Often, cold symptoms come on gradually.,  Although the common cold is usually not serious, if symptoms are severe, it is a good idea to keep your child home to rest, rather than spread the cold to other children at school.

    Keep your child home from school if:

     

    • He has a fever. This means a temperature 100 degrees or higher.
    • She has vomited.   Keep your child home until they are symptom free for 24 hours and able to tolerate solid foods
    • He has diarrhea.  Encourage good hand washing to prevent the spread to other family members. Keep your child home until they are symptom free for 24 hours and able to tolerate solid foods.
    • She is coughing frequently or having any sort of breathing trouble.
    • He has a rash that is spreading.  Check with your child’s doctor to see if it is contagious before sending your child back to school.

    In order to help prevent the spread of the disease in school, students with a fever equal to or greater than 100 degrees cannot return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications to reduce fever, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen. GOOD HAND WASHING IS THE NUMBER ONE PREVENTION.

    _____________________________________________________________________________________________

    ¿Está mi hijo/a demasiado enfermo para ir a la escuela?

    Un dilema común que enfrentan los padres es cuando nos cuestionamos “¿Cuándo debo mantener a mi hijo/a en casa y no enviarlo a la escuela?”  No es fácil como padres hoy en día hacen malabarismos con las responsabilidades de familia y trabajo.  Aquí le damos algunas pautas a seguir.

    Conozca la diferencia entre un resfriado y la gripe:

    • La gripe es una enfermedad seria grave y los síntomas incluyen fiebre, escalofríos, tos dolor de garganta, dolor de cabeza, o dolor muscular.  Con la gripe, los síntomas aparecen rápidamente. Se recomienda ponerse en contacto con el doctor si estos síntomas están presentes. Se puede recetar un medicamento antiviral.
    • Los síntomas de un resfriado común incluyen congestión nasal, estornudos, dolor de garganta y tos seca. A menudo, los síntomas del resfriado se presentan gradualmente. Aunque el resfriado común por lo general no es grave, si los síntomas son severos, es buena idea mantener a su hijo/a en casa para descansar, en lugar de propagar el resfriado a otros niños en la escuela.

    Mantenga a su hijo/a en casa si:

    • Tiene fiebre. Esto significa una temperatura igual o mayor de 100 grados.
    • Ha vomitado.   Mantenga a su hijo/a en casa hasta que esté libre de síntomas durante 24 horas y sea capaz de tolerar alimentos sólidos.
    • Tiene diarrea. Fomente el hábito de lavarse bien las manos para evitar el contagio a otros miembros de la familia. Mantenga a su hijo/a en casa hasta que este libre de síntomas durante 24 horas y sea capaz de tolerar alimentos sólidos.
    • Está tosiendo con frecuencia o tiene algún tipo de dificultad para respirar.
    • Tiene una erupción que se está extendiendo. Consulte al doctor de su hijo/a para ver si es contagiosa antes de enviar a su hijo/a a la escuela.

    Con el fin de ayudar a prevenir la propagación de la enfermedad en la escuela, los estudiantes con una fiebre igual o mayor a 100 grados, no pueden regresar a la escuela hasta que estén libres de fiebre por 24 horas sin el uso de medicamentos para reducir la fiebre, como el acetaminophen (Tylenol) o el ibuprofeno.

    EL BUEN LAVADO DE MANOS ES LA PREVENCIÓN NÚMERO UNO.
