How to Enroll in Kindergarten
All kindergarten students in District 401 attend one of our two elementary schools:
- John Mills Elementary for K students north of the railroad tracks
- Elmwood Elementary for K students south of the railroad tracks
Families have the option of full-day or half-day kindergarten.
As a kindergarten student, your child will attend either John Mills Elementary (north of the tracks) or Elmwood Elmwood (south of the tracks). Please begin your child's enrollment process by contacting your building secretary:

Please note that the main offices of John Mills and Elmwood are closed during summer break. If you plan to enroll your child in kindergarten during that time and you have questions, please contact the Registrar's Office at Elmwood Park High School:
