Updates from Sanborn School

Dear Sanborn Families,

I hope you are enjoying every moment summer has to offer! The Sanborn Staff is extremely excited to be welcoming your student(s) back to school in just a few short weeks! I personally cannot wait to meet all of your students. The large construction project at Sanborn is moving along nicely and as soon as we are back in the building, we will let you know. We are planning to have an in-person Meet the Teacher event the morning of August 17th. More details will be shared with you related to this event. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Updates from School District 15

Registration Reminder

If you haven't done so already, please remember that:

Registration is required every year.

If you have already registered your child for the 2021-22 school year, thank you—no further action is required! If you have not yet registered your child(ren) for the 2021-22 school year, you MUST complete your registration and proof of residency as soon as possible so your child(ren) is able to start school on the first day of school. Children that do not have a completed registration or proof of residency will NOT be assigned a classroom.

Online student registration for the 2021-22 school year is open. If you have not already started this process for your student(s), please visit our registration page to start this process.

Register your child. Registration is the first step in getting ready for the upcoming school year. After registering online, parents will need to go in person to your child's school and provide:

  • Health Forms. Required health, immunization, dental, and eye exams for students entering preschool, kindergarten, sixth-grade, and those who are new to the district.

  • Prove Residency. If you have a student that is starting Kindergarten, entering 4th grade, or entering 7th grade, you are required to prove residency in District 15. Our residency webpage outlines the documents you will need to provide to prove residency.

Pay student fees. Our student fee webpage outlines the District’s student fee structure and the three ways fees can be paid.

All of the above steps of the enrollment process must be completed prior to the start of the school year. Students of families that, when required, do not prove residency, will not be able to attend class in a District 15 until the family’s residency is verified.
