We are in the process of placing students with their teachers, and online registration must be both completed and approved by District 92½ before a student will be placed on a classroom list for the 2020-2021 school year. Please note that the District may require a home visit and/or additional documentation to verify residency before approving your student's registration. Teacher assignments and student schedules will be distributed as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Please note that we will not process any enrollments on August 24-26th.
