Kindergarten Registration

In an effort to best meet the needs of our future kindergarten students, the FSD79 Board of Education has decided to eliminate tuition associated with our full-day kindergarten program. Beginning in the 2023-2024 academic year, there will be no charge for full-day kindergarten in FSD79.

By eliminating tuition, more students are able to enroll in our full-day program and benefit academically, socially, and emotionally. These changes are possible due to favorable cost management by the District, as well as the availability of federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds.

Kindergarten registration for the 2024-2025 school year will begin in January 2024. Please check back in January for more information. Please contact Christie Johnson at cjohnson@fsd79.org or 847-837-0437 ext. 2007 with any questions.
