Kindergarten and new student registration for students entering Community Consolidated School District 15 will be from 9:30-11 a.m., 1-3 p.m., and 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, at all District 15 elementary schools.
For the 2013-14 school year, kindergarten students must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2013.
Enrollment requires the following information:
• A transfer slip from the previous school attended (if applicable).
• An official birth certificate (not a hospital-issued certificate) or other government document verifying the date of birth, physician's telephone number and address, if known.
• The name and phone number of two reliable local persons to call if you are unavailable in an emergency.
• Two proofs of residency (copies of driver's license, lease, or utility bills).
• Any pertinent health information, including health, dental, and eye exams at required intervals. A physical examination is valid so long as it was conducted on or after Aug. 26, 2012.
Students are usually assigned to their neighborhood school, but in special circumstances they may be assigned to schools outside their neighborhoods. Parents who are not sure which school their children will attend may call the district's Joseph M. Kiszka Educational Service Center at (847) 963-3000.
