Bureau Valley Elementary School District sets kindergarten pre-registration for Feb. 25-March 1

Bureau Valley Elementary Schools will hold kindergarten pre-registration from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 25 through March 1 in the elementary school buildings in Walnut and Wyanet. Parents will pre-register the children in the attendance center their child will attend.

Children who will be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 will be eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall. The pre-registration process is very simple and only takes a few minutes for parents to complete.

Parents will also be asked to complete an information sheet. No fees will be collected until registration in August. A packet will be issued to parents containing a parent letter with a health form, dental form, lead screening verification and a vision exam form.

Kindergarten pre-registration allows the schools to have an idea of the number of kindergartners to expect next school year so that a sufficient amount of supplies and books can be ordered. Parents who are unable to pre-register their child during the scheduled times are asked to call the office to inform the school of their intent to send a child to kindergarten. School phone numbers are Bureau Valley North Elementary in Walnut 815-379-2900 and Bureau Valley Elementary in Wyanet, 815-699-2251
