Registration for 2019-2020 (Second notice)

Online Registration will officially open on May 6th at 9:00 A.M. Please take a moment to log into Parent Portal, register your student(s), and pay your registration fees for the 2019-2020 school year.  To register your students, log into Parent Portal, then click Online Registration toward the bottom left. Similar to last year, the process will allow you to verify all student demographic, emergency, and medical information for your child prior to the start of the new school year. The system will also allow you to electronically review and sign the annual forms for school district policies and you may also submit electronic payment for student fees. Registration will close on June 3rd at 4:00 P.M.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact James Phillips at 847-205-4843 or by email

New this year, we will not be requiring families with continued enrollment from the 18-19 school year to upload proof of residency documents this year in Online Registration for the 19-20 school year. Any suspected fraudulent enrollments will be investigated.

STAR Testing(Second grade parents)

Due to some technical problems with Renaissance STAR, we suspended testing this week. We hope to resume testing next week once Renaissance has resolved the issues.
