Register Your Child If You Have Not Done So Already!
If you have not already started this process for your student(s), please visit our registration page to start this process. If paperwork is not updated, you will not be able to access teacher assignment in Infinite Campus! Call us if you have any questions.
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.

2021 - 2022 Revised School Calendar
As part of ongoing efforts to keep our schools safe and limit unnecessary visitors, the 2021-2022 school calendar was amended so that students are not in session on March 15, 2022, due to the Gubernatorial Primary Election.

Virtual Students who are missing Health Record Requirements
Hello Lincoln Parents,
This a reminder that if your virtual student is currently in Kindergarten, 6th grade, or new to the school district, they are required to have a current school year immunization record and a physical exam. If you have not submitted these records, please do so as soon as possible. These health requirements are per Illinois State Law. Please be aware your child will not be allowed to attend school for in-person learning for the 2021-2022 until these health requirements are met. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse at the information listed below.
