Parents of Incoming Kindergartners and 6th Graders: Free Health Physicals and Immunizations Available

Students entering kindergarten and sixth grade must have a physical and updated immunizations prior to the start of next school year. Your student will not be able to begin the school year without this being completed.

We have arranged for free physicals and immunizations through Advocate Children’s Hospital’s Ronald McDonald Caremobile in our district on April 13th and May 31st. This service is available for students with Medicaid or without insurance. If you are interested in taking advantage of this clinic, please talk to your building’s health coordinator or contact the district nurse for additional information as soon as possible.

REACH Registration: Tuition Spots Available

The REACH Early Childhood Program provides preschool education experiences to children ages three to five who live within Glenview School District 34. The program is an expansion of the existing District 34 Early Childhood and PreK programs and includes a mix of blended classes (including bilingual Spanish-English classes). Each blended class will include a mix of typically developing students (who pay tuition), students who meet at-risk criteria (and receive a tuition waiver), and students who have special education needs that are met within the classroom setting (and receive a tuition waiver).
