Bureau Valley CUSD #340 has set the week of February 16 - February 19, 2021 for Kindergarten Registration at Bureau Valley Elementary buildings in Walnut and Wyanet. Parents may register their child at the attendance center their child will attend. You may register between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on those dates. Children who will be five years old on or before September 1st will be eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall. The registration process is very simple and only takes a few minutes for parents to complete. Children are not required to attend the 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 16-19. All health, dental, and vision forms are due at registration in August. No fees will be collected until registration in August. Kindergarten 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 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. Parents will need to attend the K-12 registration in August. School phone numbers are: BV- Walnut Elementary (815) 379-2900 BV-Wyanet Elementary (815) 699-2251 ** Registration packets for next years’ kindergartners will be sent home and may be returned with siblings who are currently enrolled in school. **Registration packets for next years’ kindergartners will be sent home with students currently enrolled in Pre-K.
