Distance Learning Application…In accordance with Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) guidance, District 204 will provide distance learning for students who have a medical condition or live with a person with a medical condition that is compromised due to COVID19.
A student may qualify for distance learning under the following circumstances:

To assist in our planning for next year, we are asking parents/guardians requesting distance learning for their student(s) to complete the form below by June 4, 2021. Forms should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remote Students Technology… At the end of the year, tentatively, June 7th, our remote students will be returning their chrome books, text books and any additional resources that need to be returned to school. Please use the next week to make sure your child can identify and find the materials that will need to be returned to school.
Kindergarten 2021-2022… If you have a child who will be five (5) years old on or before September 1, 2021, he or she is eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year.*
We need theWelch Kindergarten Information Sheet as soon as possible so that we can begin planning kindergarten enrollment for the upcoming school year. This information will be used to form a kindergarten mailing list. Once on the mailing list, additional information will be mailed to eligible kindergarten parents.
Additionally, please review this presentation for more information about kindergarten in IPSD 204.
If you have any neighbors who do not presently have school-aged children, but will have an incoming kindergartner, please give them a copy of this form or ask them to call our office at 630.428.7200.
*District 204 recommends full day kindergarten. However, if you have questions about attending a half-day of kindergarten, or need early entrance criteria, please contact your child’s principal.
