District 303 Kindergarten Registration
The District 303 Kindergarten enrollment process for the 2021-2022 school year will be virtual. Between January 19 and March 12, families will be able to enroll their kindergarten-age children by visiting the Kindergarten Registration and Information page of the District 303 website. On the site you will find:
The New Student Intake Form should be completed first
A step by step guide to follow after submitting the Intake Form
An attendance boundary map
Health exam and immunization information
Pushcoin financial system information
Contact information for all elementary schools
Middle School Transfer Request Information
Families who wish to submit a Middle School Transfer request may do so beginning February 1, 2021. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want to be transferred. Requests are granted based on space available. This means that siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance area are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.
The Middle School Transfer request window will close at 4:00pm on February 26, 2021.
If you have questions, please contact Tammy Marsan at: 331-228-2397.
Dress for the Weather
If your family is in need of any winter wear, (Coats, Hats, Gloves) simply email Mr. Jarot email@example.com or call the front office (331)228-3300. We have plenty of donated new items from our community. Just let us know.
