Kindergarten registration is open at this time. Children who will be five years old on or before September 1st, 2021 are eligible for kindergarten during the 2021-2022 school year. Click here for more information regarding kindergarten registration.


The week of April 19th fifth grade students will take the Illinois Science Assessment (ISA). The ISA consists of three science tests which will be taken over the course of three days. Click here for more information regarding the ISA.


Student grouping and placement for the 2021-2022 school year takes place in late May. In preparation for this important task a Student Placement Information form is available on this link. This request form is due back to Mr. Dwyer by Friday, April 9th. Although a request form is not required, parent input about a child’s academic experiences can provide valuable insight to this process. Please remember that considerations for placing students in classes include but are not limited to class size, gender ratio, academic levels, student learning styles, specific student needs, diversity, and student peer relations. It is not recommended that a parent request a specific teacher due to the fact that requests are difficult to satisfy and teaching assignments can change from school year to school year. If you have questions about this form, please phone Mr. Mark Dwyer at 630-894-9200.


Parents, when you have a chance please welcome two new staff members to the DuJardin School community, Mrs. Marisol Strejc, front office secretary, and Mr. Nick Salloum, night custodian. Two wonderful additions to the faculty.

Certify your child(ren) Before they arrive to school

Please certify your child(ren) each day they are physically coming into the building. If they are not certified, they will remain in the school office until the certification is complete. Any child not certified will not be allowed in the classroom.

Student Lunch Deliveries/Drop off

Please read this letter from our Superintendent, Dr. Jon Bartelt regarding the student lunches being delivered to school.


This includes lunches from home. Please send your student to school with his/her lunch.

It is not safe to walk between cars and in front of oncoming traffic

For the safety of our parents and students, we ask that you do not park your car and walk your child through the parking lot to the door. It is not safe. There are two lanes of traffic; one that stops to drop/pick up students and the other a passing lane. It is hard to see parents and students walking between cars when someone is driving in the passing lane. We ask that you stay in your car and use the drop off line. And as always pull all the way up to the DuJardin sign on Euclid.


When you are in the drop off/ pick up lane, please remain in your car for a safer and quicker drop off/pick up.
