Junior Kindergarten Registration Is Jan. 17

Children turning four years old by Sept. 1 are eligible to join Shorewood schools' K-4 program for the 2012-13 school year.

Junior kindergarten registration for the 2012-13 school year in the Shorewood School District is slated for Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Parents will need to bring an original birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency. The district accepts copies of rental leases or tax bills as the only type of residency proof, in addition to an original utility bill.

Registration occurs at , 1600 E. Lake Bluff Blvd., or , 2100 E. Capitol Dr., depending on where you live in the Shorewood.

Children must be four years of age by Sept. 1 to qualify for junior kindergarten.  

If parents are unable register their children on Jan. 17, but plans to have their child attend the Shorewood schools kindergarten program, they should call the office at 963-6962 (Atwater) and 963-6972 (Lake Bluff).

If you know of someone who has an eligible junior kindergartner, call the appropriate school office for information.

Families with 5-year-old children who are not registered might also register on Tuesday or in the school office anytime before the new school year begins.

I'm shocked to learn that registration for K4 is in January of 2012 when school begins in September. On the Lakebluff website, it says registration is August 20, 2012. There is no information regarding the early registration, and there is a waiting list now for K4. As a resident of Shorewood, I'm not cool with this. I wish I had seen your post sooner. Admittedly, my child will be enrolled in K4 at Lakebluff because I am a Shorewood resident. However, he is on the waiting list for the morning session because I was unaware of this exceptionally early registration date.

How does this surprise you? Budgets, staffing, etc have to be decided. You cannot wait until the day before school starts to do this.

@TheDonnyShow, The Lakebluff website states registration is today, August 21st. That's why I wrote this comment.
