E-NEWS 96, Apr. 3, 2020

School District 96 schools and offices are closed and all activities and programs are canceled to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus. On Mar. 31, Governor Pritzker extended both the Stay-at-Home Order for Illinois residents and school closure through Apr. 30.

• Action Needed: Register your new or returning KCSD96 student for the 2020-21 school year 
Fees automatically increase by $20 per student after Apr. 15.

Check your email. Registration emails for each unregistered student were sent again yesterday–Thurs., Apr. 2. Subject Line: Register your District 96 Student for the 2020-2021 School Year. 

Each registration email (one per KCSD96 student) includes a link and a unique “snapcode” needed for access to register your student for 2020-21.

Info you provided previously will appear in your student’s online registration record. Please check it carefully. Update it if it is not accurate. If unable to update the form or if you have registration questions, please send an email to the public info coordinator. 

We do recognize that paying a registration fee may be an expense some families prefer not to incur prior to Apr. 15. In that circumstance, please complete the registration form and, on the payment page, choose “Waive fees” and submit your student’s form. 
MORE INFO ON THE PROCESS TO WAIVE FEES. (Fee waiver applications begin after July 1.)
