DISTRICTWIDE NEWCOMER MEETING – Welcoming 2019–20 parents new to KCSD96
The Newcomer Conversation on Mar. 9 in the Ivy Hall School Mat Room at 6:30 p.m. is for parents new to Kildeer Countryside School District (KCSD) 96 in this 2019–20 school year. Ask questions, meet other parents, and inform KCSD96 staff about how we can best support you. If you attended a Newcomer Conversation earlier this year, we hope you’ll return to connect again and help welcome others new to KCSD96.
Questions? Contact Community Parent Liaison Lubna Adrabi, 847.459.4260, ext. 8136.

Family Educator Conferences will be held by appointment Thurs., Mar. 12, 5–8:30 p.m., and Fri., Mar. 13, 10 a.m.–1:30 p.m. For more info about these collaborative conferences, the role of families in them, and suggested questions during the conference, please see your student’s Feb. 14 Principal Message.

Please note that 2020-21 registration emails–originally scheduled to be sent to parents/guardians of all returning and preregistered students on Tues., Mar. 3–were NOT sent.

The emails are delayed due to a technical issue with the vendor. We anticipate sending those emails in the week ahead. We regret any inconvenience.

Each registration email (one per KCSD96 student) will include a link and a unique “snapcode” needed for access to register your returning student for 2020–2021. 

Information you provided previously will appear in your student’s online registration record. Please check that info carefully and update it if it is not accurate. 

Completing and submitting online registration and making payment no later than Apr. 15, 2020, will save families $20 in registration cost per student. Fees increase after Apr. 15, 2020. Registration questions? Call 847.459.4260, ext. 8022.
