Dear South Holland School District 151 Families,
Registration for the 2020-21 school year is now open! The first day of school will be Thursday, August 6, 2020. It is important that all students be registered for the new school year as soon as possible. This will help us to prepare for your child(ren) to return to school safely on the first day.
At this time, Illinois is in Phase 4 of Governor Pritzker’s Reopening Illinois plan. If we remain in Phase 4 in August, we will welcome all of our students back for in-person instruction on the first day of school. We are making extensive plans to keep our schools safe. All students, staff members, and building visitors will be required to wear masks or facial coverings while in the buildings. We will also be doing temperature screenings for everyone entering school buildings. Before school starts in August, we will provide specific information about our health and safety protocols.
If the Illinois Department of Public Health moves our region back to Phase 3, we will be prepared to provide Remote Learning for students at all grade levels. This will include providing iPads or laptops for students to use at home.
We are asking all families to register their children for school as soon as possible. The registration deadline to make sure everything is ready for your child to return to school on the first day is July 31, 2020. Please keep reading for some important information about registering your child for school.
Once again, ALL returning students will be registered online using the PowerSchool Parent Portal. The PowerSchool Parent Portal is an online system that can be accessed from any computer with internet access 24 hours a day 7 days per week. This gives our families the flexibility to register at a time that is convenient for them.
Information about registering for the 2020-21 school year can be found on our district website (www.shsd151.org ). Families with new or returning students who have questions or need assistance with registration can contact the district office at 708-339-1516. District staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide assistance.
If you need to come into the district office to provide residency or other paperwork or to get assistance, please be aware that you must wear a mask. We encourage you to call ahead to make an appointment. Only one family will be allowed into the district office at a time by appointment or walk-in.
Ready Day One!
Once again we are providing our “Ready Day One” program as an incentive to complete the registration process! Each student that is registered for the 2020-21 school year will receive a backpack with school supplies! We want to ensure that every child is ready to start school on day one! Thank you for your support.
