District 54 will hold kindergarten registration for the 2018-19 school year on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018. Registration will take place from 9 to 11 a.m., 1 to 2:30 p.m. and 6 to 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. (Lincoln Prairie is not a neighborhood school). 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, 2018 is eligible to enroll in kindergarten in 2018. District 54 follows the Illinois regulations and doesn’t admit students whose birth date is after Sept. 1.
