For Returning Students


NOTE: All active links on this page have been updated for the 2017-18 school year. Any inactive links will be made operational as soon as the updated documents become available.


Definition of "Returning Student"


A student is a "returning student" if he or she is entering 1st grade or above and attended a District 401 school the previous school year.

If a student did not attend a District 401 school or if the student is entering preschool or kindergarten, please see the New/Transfer Students page. A student entering preschool or kindergarten is considered "new" even if he or she attended the Early Childhood Center the previous year.


Instructions for Returning Students


All returning students must re-enroll if they want to attend a District school in 2017-18.

Enrollment is a two-step process: residency and payment.


Step 1: Residency


Residency documents for returning students are due July 24, 2017. Students will be unenrolled if residency has not been approved.

All families are asked to: 

► Fill out the Proof of Residency Form (one per family) 

► Make copies of your proofs of residency

► Make sure the name and address are the same on all documents

► Submit your documents by email, fax or postal mail

or

  • Fax your documents to: 708-452-0732

or

  • Mail your documents to:

Kim Kaminski
EPHS
8201 W. Fullerton
Elmwood Park, IL 60707

Although we encourage you to email, fax or mail your documents to us, there will be walk-in, drop-off enrollment ("open enrollment") for 2017-18 returning students from 1 to 7 p.m. on Monday, July 24, 2017, at Elmwood Park High School. Bring copies of your proofs of residency.


Step 2: Payment


Enrollment requires the payment of school fees. Payment is due by Sept. 1, 2017.

Families have several payment options:

► Pay online with a credit or debit crard

► Pay by mail with a check or money order

► Pay in person on July 24, 2017, with cash, credit card, debit card, check or money order

► Pay in installments by mail or online beginning May 1, with payment in full by Sept. 1, 2017
