Dear Parents/Guardians:

Brookwood School District 167 | EARLY REGISTRATION!

We will be going forward with our early registration kickoff as planned, however we will be postponing our online registration.  This is due to technical issues beyond our control.  As a result, we will be conducting registration by hand as we have done in the past.  For returning students, to help streamline this process, we ask that you bring the letter mailed home along with a picture ID that matches the district address on your letter when you register as this will serve as your proof of residency.  If you do not bring this letter that includes your child’s name and district address, you will be expected to prove residency in order to register (P.O. Boxes will NOT be accepted and you will need to bring each letter per child that you are registering). We will only be requiring proof of residency for new students to the district or for families that are on a residency affidavit.  The timeline for registration is as follows:

REGISTRATION DATES AND TIMES

Tuesday, April 21, 2015             1:00-6:00 PM       Students with last names (A-L)

Wednesday, April 22, 2015       1:00-6:00  PM      Students with last names (M-Z)

REGISTRATION LOCATION

Brookwood Junior High School | Gymnasium
201 E. Glenwood-Lansing Road
Glenwood, IL  60425

REGISTRATION FEES

$100.00 due at time of registration!

By conducting an early registration, it is our hope that we can focus on students and learning during the summer months.  As this is our first time implementing early registration, we ask for your patience and understanding as we move forward with this process.

Thank you for all your support.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding registration.

Sincerely,

Bethany A. Lindsay, Principal
Brookwood Junior High School
