FSD Begins Kindergarten Registration for 2016-2017 School Year

Freeport – Freeport School District 145 has just announced that the Freeport School District’s Kindergarten Registration for the 2016-2017 school year will take place from January 11th to March 25th at the FSD Enrollment & Transportation Center, located at 2037 W. Galena Avenue (across the street from Sullivan’s and Goodwill).

Please note that children must be 5 years old before Sept. 1, 2016, to be eligible for Kindergarten.

When registering, parents should be sure to bring:
1) A Copy of your child’s Certified Birth Certificate (not a hospital-issued certificate), and
2) Proof of Residency, in the form of:

One of these documents – real estate tax bill and proof of payment, signed lease and proof of last month’s payment, affidavit from local resident attesting registrant is living with the owner at no cost, mortgage papers, or an agreement of sale


Three of these documents – most recent gas, electric or water bill, home/apartment insurance papers, vehicle registration, current public aid card, most recent cable or credit card bill, driver’s license, or voter registration card.

Please note that Kindergarten students are also required to have physical, dental and vision exams before school begins. That documentation is not required to register, but must be completed by October 15th, 2016.

It is important that students are registered and enrolled for kindergarten as soon as possible so the district can ensure that staffing positions and curriculum resources are in place.
