Dear Forest Glen Families,


The end of the school year is quickly approaching!  Here are a few announcements and reminders for our families:


Registration for the 2015-2016 School Year

We know that everyday activities keep us very busy; however it is very important that registration for your child be completed so we may begin the process of preparing class lists for next year.  Any student who is not registered by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, May 18 will be considered as not returning, will be assigned an inactive status for next year and will NOT be included in the scheduling process. 


If you know that your child will not be returning in the fall, please call your our school office and let them know.  If you are unsure your child will be returning next year, registration should still be completed so your child can be included in making plans for next year.


The registration portal is still open in Skyward Family Access.  Login at www.d41.org  and complete registration today.  No fees are required for registration at this time.


If you have any questions or need assistance with the returning registration process, please don't hesitate to call me or our school office. We want to work with you to be sure your child's records are correct so he or she will be included in our work as we prepare for next year. 


Bicycle Safety 
With the weather getting nicer, and children spending more time outdoors, this is a great time to talk with children about bicycle safety. Fortunately, the League of Illinois Bicyclists has made it easy to teach kids how to ride safely. Their online Bike Safety Quiz is a fun educational tool that is geared to children in grades 4 thru 6. A brief bike safetyquiz is available online at www.bikesafetyquiz.com. Click on the Child Bicyclist quiz and, when prompted, enter code 387105004.  A safety quiz for adults and older children is also available. Once the safety quiz is completed, children will receive a certificate of completion.
