Registration

Registration for returning students for the 2022-2023 school year will open on Monday, April 25th.

Pre-K and Kindergarten families, please use the Pre-K/Kindergarten Registration link on the left for pre-K/K specific registration information.

For Returning EPS families ...
You must register your child every year by confirming and/or updating student demographic information and signing permissions. Student demographic updates/confirmations can be done online or by confirming/correcting the information on the registration papers that were mailed home in April. These forms should be returned to the main office.
Returning families will be run through Tracers software to determine residency status. Families that pass the screening will not be required to provide residency paperwork during registration. Any families which are flagged by the Tracers software will be notified (a bright pink form was included in the mailing) and may be asked to provide other documents to prove current residency, much like we have done in the past. 
In-person registration will be held May 17 - 20 for any family needing assistance to complete the process. Please reach out to Mrs. Mueller ([email protected]) or Mrs. McMichael ([email protected]) in the main office (847-673-1141) to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions.
Please use the tabs to the left for more information on Proof of Residency, Required Medical Forms, How to Register On-Line (Current Student Only), and upcoming school fees.
