All students, new and returning, must be registered for the current school year.
Newly enrolled students: After enrolling with RPS 205, you will need to complete and submit a Registration packet with your student's assigned school(s) before the student(s) attends school.
Returning students: Parent/Guardian must complete and submit a Registration for each student. This may be completed during the Spring Registration Drive or during Summer Registration by mail. Parent/Guardian does NOT need to attend in-person registration unless they need to pay for any extra fees that aren’t waived, such as parking permits at a high school or to purchase a yearbook, or your student takes medication and you need to speak to the nurse.
- The district will mail registration packets to all current EC grade 43 and 5th - 11th grade families in the beginning of May. The deadline to return packets is Friday, June 2nd.
- Elementary families (current EC grade 44 - 4th grade) will be able to register online June 14th - August 4th.
- Families are encouraged to include proof of immunizations, school and sports physicals when they return completed packets.
- Questions about registration, email RegistrationHelp@rps205.com.
All registration packets will include a return envelope to mail completed packets back, or you can use the Drop Box located at Operations Support - 5052 28th Ave.
August 16: 7 a.m. - 3 p.m.
August 17: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Families in Transition
Students need a health exam/physical within one year of starting kindergarten, sixth grade and ninth grade – or when entering an Illinois school system for the first time. All other high school students need a sports physical if they plan to participate in sports. Sports physicals are good for 13 months and do not replace the required ninth grade physical. Completed physical paperwork can be included in registration packets.
School’s main office staff will share more specific details about classroom assignments, any fines that need to be paid from the current school year, and help students with medication connect with the school nurse.
