New Students to the District

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the District.  For all students new to the District, the following documents must be presented at the time of registration:

Birth Certificate
Families must provide a legal birth certificate to register their children.
Hospital/baptismal certificates are not acceptable.


Health Requirements
Recent physical examination and current immunization records are required.

Proof of Residency

THREE documents are required to verify residency.  You must submit proof of residency within District 56 boundaries by providing ONE document from Category I and TWO documents from Category II.  All documents must be current (within past two months) and include parent/guardian name and address.

Illinois Student Transfer Form
If a student is transferring from another public school in Illinois, an Illinois Student Transfer form must be obtained from the previous school and submitted along with the other registration documents

If you have not already done so, you are encouraged to contact our District Office at
(847) 336-0800 to confirm that your new address is within District boundaries. 
We look forward to assisting you with this process. 
New Student Registration packets can be picked up at the District Office after July 4th.  
You will be required to present all of these items to us prior to registering your child(ren) for school.


New Student Registration Dates
New student registration will occur  
at the District Office (Door C1) 
on:

August 2nd    8:00am - 11:00am
August 3rd    12:00pm - 3:00pm


Every attempt should be made to pay school fees at the time of registration or as soon as possible.  Each student will be assigned an iPad that will be his/her primary instructional tool.  I strongly recommend that each family make accommodations ($30.00) to allow students to have 24-7 access to their iPads to ensure maximum learning gains for them.

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school.  Again, welcome to Gurnee School District 56.
