WAIT. WHAT? ... THE REQUIREMENT TO RE-PROVE RESIDENCY
Parents of ALL currently enrolled kindergartners and 5th graders whose students will attend in School District 96 in the 2020–2021 school year must prove their residency again.
When school resumes following Winter Break, administrative assistants at Willow Grove and KCSD96 elementary schools will accept proof of residency and provide a required form for your signature.
Please note that the requirement to re-prove residency for a current kindergartner and a current 5th grader applies–even for families who have other students currently attending KCSD96 schools.
