Full Day Kindergarten Registration Opening Soon!

McHenry Elementary School District 15

Kindergarten Registration


McHenry Elementary School District 15 is excited to announce the implementation of full-day Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year. We have many exciting opportunities for our incoming Kindergarten families between now and the beginning of next school year. Our first important event, that you will not want to miss, is our Kindergarten Registration.

Parents should come to their child’s future school on registration night in order to complete the required documentation, including a questionnaire about your child’s development. If you prefer to complete and print the required documentation prior to registration, these documents can be found at

While students are not required to attend, daycare services will be provided for those parents who wish to bring their child. The Kindergarten registration fee will be $90.00 (full-day), $57.00 (AM Half-day); however, registration fees are not required at this time. Please contact your school at the number listed below or the McHenry School District Office at 815-385-7210 if you have any further questions.

Who is eligible: Any child who will be 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2019
