2020-2021 School Year
Dear Incoming Kindergarten Families,
Welcome to Lake Forest School District 67! This web page is designed to help with kindergarten enrollment. Please refer to the timeline for Incoming Kindergarten Registration below, which explains the process for entering kindergarten at Lake Forest School District 67.
Lake Forest School District 67 recommends that, to enter kindergarten, children should be five years of age on or before September 1 of their kindergarten year. Parents whose children turn five years of age between September 1 and November 1 of their kindergarten year can request consideration for early entrance if their child’s abilities are accelerated, and skill levels across all major domains are commensurate with what is expected of entering kindergartners.
To view the District's Early Entrance Procedures, including the steps to request consideration for Early Entrance, please visit the Policies and Procedures page of the website.

Step 3: Complete Online Registration and Pay School Fees

Electronic Student Residency Verification
All students registering at Lake Forest School District 67 are required to provide proof of residency. Lake Forest School District 67 has contracted with a third party firm to automatically check information provided during the registration process against electronic records. In the event that residency cannot be verified electronically, a member of our staff will reach out to you to obtain further information and documentation.
