Important Dates and Summer Wishes

On behalf of the staff at Dirksen we want to wish you a wonderful summer vacation!  We enjoyed a great school year and look forward to having our dolphins return in August.  Please mark your calendars for August 15th which will be our supply drop off and curriculum night.  I will send a timeline of events for that evening with my welcome back letter at the beginning of August.  The welcome back letter will also include your child’s classroom placement for the 2019-2020 school year. The first day of school for Grades 1-6 and for all students in Grades K-6 in the instructional classrooms for students with autism (Rooms 201, 202, 203, 204) will be August 19th. The first day of school for our Kindergarten students in Rooms 101, 102 and 103 will be August 26th.

If you missed registering your child, you can still register over the summer.  The district will have Summer Registration on Tuesdays 8:00am-6:00pm, Wednesdays 8:00am-6:00pm, and Thursdays 7:30am-2:00pm from June 25 to July 25.  Please register through your parent portal and bring residency documentation and original birth certificate to our district office at 524 E. Schaumburg Road . You can also bring any incomplete registration forms or missing residency documents

Have a wonderful summer!

Registration for the 2019-20 School Year

Registration for the 2019/2020 school year will be available through the parent portal starting Monday, April 1, 2019. If you do not have a parent portal account, you should have received an email with instructions and a link to do so. Please contact the main office if you need assistance.

Beginning this year, the district is contracting with a third-party vendor to automatically verify student address information. If your residency is verified electronically, you will not need to submit any additional paperwork to certify that you live within the district’s boundaries. To verify residency, the vendor will use a parent’s name and address to crosscheck the information against electronic databases from other organizations, such as utility companies.

We anticipate most addresses will be verified electronically. If we cannot verify your address electronically, we will send you a letter detailing what additional information you will need to provide in order to register your child for the upcoming school year.
