Welcome to Kindergarten!
District 123 follows Illinois School Code, which specifies that to enter kindergarten, children must be five years of age by September 1 of their kindergarten year and six years of age by September 1 of their first-grade year. Occasionally, exceptions to both of these policies may be made for children whose potential and skills are in the very superior range.
District 123 has specific criteria and procedures for considering parent requests for early entrance. For more information regarding early entrance to Kindergarten, please click here.
2017-2018 Registration information
All incoming Kindergarten students will be screened prior to the start of school. If you have not received your screening appointment by mid-August, please call your school’s main office.
Kindergarten Open House
Kindergarten registration opens every January. We recommend families register early so they do not miss out on Open House and our Parent University: Transitions that Work! in May. Information will be mailed home from each elementary building.
