How Do I Register my Kindergartner for NEXT School Year (2023-2024)?
Kindergarten Registration is a three-step process. Please know that ALL THREE STEPS are required before your child is fully registered with Arlington Heights School District 25.
STEP 1 - Pre-Registration:
Click the following link to complete and submit the online form to request a Kindergarten Registration packet: Pre-Registration Form
STEP 2 - Kindergarten Registration Packet Submission: After completing Step 1, a packet of kindergarten registration forms and information will be emailed to you using the contact information that you provided in Step 1. Please complete all required forms and collect all requested supporting documentation and return them to your school's office. There will be a letter from your school included in the packet that is sent to you with directions regarding how and where to return your completed registration materials. It is requested that completed Kindergarten registration forms be returned to your school office by February 17th, 2023.
Residency: All NEW families (families who do not have any students currently attending a District 25 school) must complete the Verification of Residency Form. Click Here for more information on District 25 Residency Requirements.
Birth Certificates: You will need to provide an original or certified copy of your child's official birth certificate to your school (photocopies are not acceptable). A certified copy of the official birth certificate may be obtained from the county seat of the area in which the child was born. Click here for information from the Cook County Clerk's office for requesting a birth certificate for children born in Chicago and suburban Cook County.
For additional questions regarding your school's Kindergarten Packet Submission, please contact the school's main office.
STEP 3 - Online Registration: Starting May 1st 2023, the annual district-wide online registration will go live for all new and returning District 25 families who are registering students for the 2023-2024 school year. That day you will receive information, via the email address you provided in Step 1, detailing how to complete the online registration process. Please note, this is an additional online registration process, and different than what was completed in Step 1 -- ALL STUDENTS must complete this online registration in order to be enrolled.
