Kindergarten and New Student Registration 2020-2021 School Year

District 45 is pleased to announce that we will begin kindergarten and new student registration for the 2020-21 school year in March.

Registration Dates for 2020/2021 enrollment:

  • North - March 19
  • Ardmore - March 19
  • Westmore - March 19
  • Stevenson - March 11
  • Schafer - March 19

In accordance with Illinois School Code guidelines, your child must be five years old on or before September 1st to be eligible for kindergarten. Parents should bring their child’s certified birth certificate when registering their child for kindergarten.

Additional information needed at the time of registration includes: phone numbers for parents and guardians (home, cell, and work, as applicable), and email addresses. In order to register, the parent/guardian will also be required to verify residency by producing three current documents including items such as: most recent real estate tax bill, signed lease for residence, current driver’s license, gas or electric bill, and/or other acceptable documents verifying residence in D45. Please contact the school your child will be enrolled at with any questions to be sure you have the proper documentation needed to register.

At registration, parents/guardians will be given state physical examination forms and information to be completed and filed with the school before the start of the 2020-21 school year. Dental forms will be distributed and must be returned by May 15, 2021. Vision examination forms will also be distributed and must be returned by October 15, 2020.

Please note, parents/guardians of children who have attended D45’s Early Childhood Program are still required to register their child at the appropriate school for kindergarten students.


Residents with questions regarding kindergarten or new student registration can contact the school in which their child will be enrolled at. We look forward to meeting our new students and families in the 2020-21 school year.
