Kindergarten Registration For 2019-20 School Year

The entire month of April we will have Kindergarten Registration. You will be able to come by the school office Monday - Friday 9:00 - 3:00. All forms are online this year. To find these forms, you will need to go to www.kv.k12.in.us and go to the Wheatfield Elementary School Page - off to the left side you will see Quick Links - select the link called "WES Kindergarten Round-Up". You can print the forms, fill them out and bring them to our office or come in and fill them out. Please make sure you have a working email address. You will need 2 forms of residency, shot record, and birth certificate for your child entering Kindergarten. Your child must be 5 years old as of August 1st. We will not be doing a screening. Click below on "read more" to see the Minimum Immunization Requirements For the 2019-20 School Year.

 

eLearning Days

As Kankakee Valley School Corporation continues to make technology an active part of teaching and learning in our district, we are continuing to have eLearning Days. eLearning Days allow for school districts to offer instruction digitally so that schools are able to make up lost days due to inclement weather. As you know, the possibility of bad weather is always real for all of us in NW Indiana.

Using Pin Code When Calling Into School

This year the school has implemented a new security measure to protect the safety of our students.  When parents or guardians call into school, they must provide the school with the Pin they created at registration when asking for certain  confidential information (e.g. grades, health issues, discipline, attendance, address, contact info., family/sibling info., etc.). This also includes information that pertains to student location (bus number/route), or financial information (balances), or early dismissal arrangements.  We understand that this will take time to get used to but we are only looking out for your child’s safety.   This is to ensure we are adhering to FERPA and HIPAA requirements.  If a parent forgets their Pin code, they can log in to Family Access and re-set it. Otherwise, they will need to come to the office and provide proper Identification.
