Enrollment FAQ

  • How do I enroll my student(s)?

    Click on either NEW or Returning student registration.  Your student is “NEW” if they have NEVER attended Freeport School District before, and “Returning” if they have attended Freeport School District before (even if it was a long time ago).

    Yes, all registration is online.  We have computers available at the Enrollment Center if you would like, along with an Enrollment specialist who can help you with any questions you may have.

     

    What documents do I need to successfully enroll my student?

    What does First Day Exclusion mean?

    First-day exclusion is when students who do not have an updated Illinois School Physical and Immunization record on file with the school are "excluded" or not allowed to attend school. Students entering PK, Kindergarten, 6th, 9th and 12th grades are all effected. If you have questions about your student and their status please contact our office or your student's school. 

    ***Due to COVID-19 First Day Exclusion will not be enforced. Families will have until OCTOBER 15, 2020 to have all required immunizations and physicals turned in.***

     

    What school will my children attend?

    The Freeport School District is a boundary driven district for elementary grades, therefore, students are assigned a school based on the boundary your residence is located in. Students in 5th and 6th grade attend Carl Sandburg Middle School, students in 7th and 8th grade attend Freeport Middle School and all students in 9th-12th grades attend Freeport High School. You can use the school finder tool on the 2020-2021 Boundary Change Information page to see what elementary school your residence is in.
