Distancing COVID Update- Changes for 3/28

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you know, over the last few weeks, we have begun working to move back to our pre-COVID classroom and lunchtime seating routines. Doing so requires us to move furniture back into these spaces over the remaining months of the school year. In some cases, a few other schools have begun implementation while others will be utilizing spring break to allow our custodial team to unearth stored furniture and get schools settled. We will be moving to pre-Covid seating in our lunchroom, and students currently eating in our small gym, will move back to the cafeteria starting Monday, March 28th.

If you have any concerns with this change, please reach out to me before spring break begins so I can make arrangements for an alternate lunchroom space in which children will remain 6 feet apart until the school year ends.

Thank you so much for your continued support. Have a great spring break!

District 15 Online Registration

Online student registration for the 2022-23 school year is now open. If you have not already started this process for your student(s), please visit our registration page to start this process.

Registration is the first step in getting ready for the up-coming school year. After you register your child online you need to:

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

  2. If you have a student that is starting Kindergarten, entering fourth 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.

All three 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.


View the recorded CCSD15 Parent University sponsored registration webinar. For written registration instructions, please watch our Campus Parent - An Introduction.

In the event that a family is unable to provide any needed documentation because of a temporary living situation, please contact Julie O'Hara, 847-963-3210,; or Min Goodwin, 847-963-3209,, in the Superintendent's Office.

Think you may be eligible for a student fee waiver? Visit our student fee webpage to learn about the requirements and how to apply.

Think you may be eligible for services under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act? Please contact Tiffanie Jefferies, Ed.D., Director of Student Services, 847-963-3152.

Thank you.

Orland Park Dental Services- District 15

Community Consolidated School District 15 will be hosting Orland Park Dental Services (OPDS) coming up in March through May. OPDS has provided in-school dental services for all eligible children in the State of Illinois since 1999. Dental services will be accessible to children eligible for public aid as well as for those with private insurance.

Anyone signed up will receive a free dental exam and a toothbrush. For those that qualify or provide private insurance information, the additional services may include a cleaning, fluoride treatment, and sealants. All services done will be given to the child in a take home form describing the services determined, areas of concern, overall oral care score, and any additional care needed. If any additional help is needed for the child a comprehensive list of available local dentists will be given with no limits of insurance. All these in-school services will be provided by licensed dentists, hygienists, and assistants with state-of-the-art portable equipment and ensuring a clean, safe, and comfortable environment at your child’s school.

District 15 & PATH Community Closet

Every year, many children in the Palatine area lack proper clothing for the Illinois’ winter weather. District 15 has a long-standing partnership with the PATH Community Closet. The Community Closet serves the Palatine area by providing donated clothing to children and families in need. The impact of COVID has left the Community Closet with less donated clothing than in past years. We are hoping you can help by donating any unwanted clothing items at your school’s yellow clothing donation bin. The bin is located in your school’s lobby. Parents or children can place clothing items into their school’s yellow bin during regular school hours. This is a great way to put your children’s gently used and outgrown clothing to good use! All clothing, especially winter wear, is much appreciated and will be put to good use.
