24-25 Enrollment/Registration


The enrollment process consists of two parts - registration/enrollment and proof of residency (except for pre-K students living out-of-district). Our in-person enrollment event was held on Thursday, March 21st but enrollment for new students can begin any time using this link. THIS LINK IS ONLY FOR BRAND NEW STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT ATTENDED PRESCHOOL OR ANY OTHER GRADE AT EAST PRAIRIE.

Returning preschool students who need to register for another year of preschool or kindergarten will need to either create or log in to their PowerSchool Parent account to complete the registration process. Instructions for that can be found here.

Click here for more information about required documents to prove residency.  All new students and pre-K families residing within the district will need to prove residency.

You will also need to provide your child’s birth certificate and a parent/guardian ID in addition to the residency documents.  The registration process can still be started even if you do not have all of the documents.  Documents can be attached during the online enrollment process or paper copies can be made in the school office.

Registration instructions for returning students, grades 1-8, will be sent in April. Please call the school office at (847) 673-1141 or email info@eps73.net with any questions. Please also feel free to stop in the office any time for more assistance.
