Kindergarten Pre-Registration & Open House

North School is having an open house for all incoming kindergarten students on March 8 from 5-6 pm in their cafeteria.  

If your child will be attending kindergarten in the fall and they attend a local preschool, all packets have been delivered to the preschools.  If your child is not attending preschool locally and you would like to pick up a pre-registration packet, please stop by the school at 805 N. Cherokee between 7:30a.m and 3:30p.m.

A child’s birth date determines whether or not they will attend kindergarten in the fall. If your child turns 5 on or before September 1, they are allowed to register for kindergarten for the 2023-24 school year.  There are times a parent chooses to keep their child in preschool.  Per ISBE, if a child turns 5 on or before September 1, 2023, we are not permitted to enroll them in our public preschool program (PREP). Therefore the student would either attend a private preschool or register for kindergarten.  

All students must have a physical, proof of vaccinations, a dental exam, and a vision exam prior to entering kindergarten.  It would be helpful if you schedule those appointments as soon as possible, as the clinics get overwhelmed in the summer. We also need a certified copy of each student’s birth certificate and two proofs of residency.  If possible, please return those with your pre-registration information.  

This is a pre-registration process in order to get students entered into the Skyward system prior to the district’s online registration.   During the summer you will finalize the registration process by completing district forms online.
