Lincoln Attendance Center to Conduct Kindergarten Pre-registration

Lincoln Attendance Center will conduct pre-registration for students who will be attending
Kindergarten in the 2020 – 2021 school year. Children who are five years of age on or before September 1,
2020 are eligible to start school in August. Pre-registration will be held at Lincoln Attendance Center, 113
Tenth Street, on Friday, April 24th, from 9:00 AM to 4:00PM for parent(s) AND the student.

Information obtained at this early registration provides us with a tentative number of kindergarten
students. The data helps us purchase supplies, finalize staffing plans, and prepare bus routes for next year.
We will conduct a speech screening and a readiness assessment with each potential kindergartner. This
testing provides parents and faculty with essential information prior to starting school.

Students who attend Kindergarten in the State of Illinois are required to provide the following
information before they start school:
□ a copy of the student’s birth certificate
□ an up-to-date immunization record
□ a physical on the Illinois state form
□ a lead screening or lead assessment
□ an eye exam by an optometrist or opthamologist (this may be waived)

The State of Illinois also requires students to have a dental exam by May of their Kindergarten year.
Students who need to take medication at school, have food or other allergies must have the proper forms
completed by their physician and parent. All forms may be obtained at Lincoln Attendance Center. Please
bring your student’s birth certificate and immunization records to the screening. Other documents will need
to be on file at the school by August.

Early registration is crucial for students who will start Kindergarten this coming August. Please
contact the school office at Lincoln at 384-3421 if you cannot bring your child to the April 24th screening.
Friday, April 24th is a ½ day teacher-inservice for students at Lincoln; therefore, staff will be available to
give tours of the building after noon for anyone interested! We would also appreciate you telling friends and
family about this event if you know of a child who will be five years old by September 1, 2020.
You must also attend registration on August 6th from 9:00am to 7:00pm in order to update records
and find out who your child’s teacher will be for the school year.
