At the Kindergarten Registration, parents will be asked to complete the necessary paperwork to enroll their child. Parents are asked to bring the following documents (copies if possible): *Two (2) items of proof of residency (drivers license, home ownership title or deed, apartment lease, voter registration, utility bills, automobile insurance, or other documents that prove residency). If you are unable to provide the required documentation, please alert school personnel. *State issued child’s birth certificate Illinois law requires that all Kindergarten students show proof of required immunizations, physical, dental, and vision examinations for the start of school.

If you have any questions about the registration process or are unable to attend, please contact: Wauconda Grade School, Robert Crown School or Cotton Creek School. Please feel free to share this information with your neighbors.
