Kindergarten Pre-Registration

Bureau Valley CUSD #340 has set the week of February 21- February 24, 2023 for Kindergarten Pre-Registration at Bureau Valley Elementary buildings in Walnut and Wyanet. Parents may pre-register their child at the attendance center their child will attend. You may pre-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 pre-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 pre-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 21-24. All health, dental, and vision forms are due at registration in the summer. No fees will be collected until registration in the summer.

 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. Parents will need to attend the K-12 registration in the summer.

 School phone numbers are:

BV- Walnut Elementary   (815) 379-2900                 BV-Wyanet Elementary        (815) 699-2251

** Pre-Registration packets for next years’ kindergartners will be sent home with students currently enrolled in Pre-K or siblings and may be returned to school with preschoolers or siblings who are currently enrolled in school.
