District 58 announces Kindergarten Roundup schedule

Parents also invited to Kindergarten Readiness Night on Feb. 15

Downers Grove Grade School District 58 invites parents of soon-to-be kindergarteners to attend Kindergarten Roundup at their future school this March and April. Kindergarten Roundup provides parents the opportunity to visit their child’s future school, meet the principal and staff, and ask questions.

Children who will be five years old on or before Sept. 1, 2018 may attend kindergarten during the 2018-19 school year. Parents are encouraged to directly call their neighborhood elementary school prior to the Kindergarten Roundup for information about registration.

Parents may check District 58’s school boundary map at http://dg58.org/school-boundary-maps/ to see which school their child will attend.*
