Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year!

Hello, Jane Addams Families

Thank you all for completing student registration for the 2021-22 school year. If you have any questions about this process for your student(s), please visit our registration page. As a reminder, our student fee webpage outlines the District’s student fee structure and the three ways fees can be paid.

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

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.

Meet the Teacher

We are excited to offer an in-person Meet the Teacher event on Tuesday, August 17, 2021 at Jane Addams for students and their parents. This morning event is a wonderful opportunity to drop off your school supplies and meet your Teacher the day before school begins for our 1st through 6th grade students the following day. As a reminder, kindergarten begins August 19.

Please remember to pack gym shoes and those water bottles!

NO cars should enter the staff parking lot to let children out there. It is unsafe to have students cross the Drop Off Lane. The JA parking lot is CLOSED for drop-off until 8:00 a.m.

Lunch and Breakfast at Jane Addams

As in past years, students at Jane Addams are provided breakfast and lunch at no cost. Students can bring items from home. Should they want a milk with lunch, they need only select a fresh fruit option to partner as a meal.

We are fortunate to provide meals at no cost for our students.
