School is cancelled on Wednesday, January 23rd!
The Bureau Valley National Honor Society is partnering with the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center to hold a blood drive on Wednesday, January 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in the high school gym. You must be 17 years old to donate blood, or 16 years old with a parental consent form. You must also weigh at least 110 pounds. Did you know giving blood takes about an hour and the difference it can make for patients who receive life saving transfusions can last a lifetime! To schedule an appointment call 815-445-4004.
Children who will be five years old on or before September 1st will be eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall. The pre-registration process is very simple and only takes a few minutes for parents to complete. Children are not required to attend the pre-registration process. Incoming kindergarten students will be able to meet their teachers and see their classroom at a Meet ‘n Greet in August.
Parents will be required to present proof of age (certified copy of birth certificate) at the time of registration. A certified copy of birth certificate may be acquired at the courthouse in the county in which the child was born.
A packet will be issued to parents containing some registration paperwork, a health form, dental form, lead screening verification, vision exam form and some informational sheets. All registration paperwork will need to be completed and turned in the week of February 4-8. All health, dental, and vision forms are due at registration in August. No fees will be collected until registration in August.
Kindergarten pre-registration allows the schools to have an idea of the number of kindergartners to expect next school year so that a sufficient amount of supplies and books can be ordered for our students. Parents who are unable to pre-register their child during the scheduled times are asked to call the office to inform the school of their intent to send a child to kindergarten.
