Collinsville Community Unit School District #10 has announced a new online enrollment process for 2020-21 Kindergarten students.
Assistant Superintendent and Director of Student Services Bradley Hyre introduced the new process:
“As we continue with Remote Learning in Unit 10 for the remainder of the current school year, we look forward to the time when we are able to have staff and students in schools for the 2020-2021 school year. Like many school districts across the country, Collinsville CUSD 10 is adapting to the ever-changing environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. To help protect the health and safety of our families, we are excited to offer a convenient Remote Online Enrollment Opportunity for the Class of 2033 (next year’s Kindergarten students).
The Kindergarten Online Enrollment application platform will allow parents/guardians a convenient method to enroll their student into the Collinsville School District using a Personal Computer, Smartphone or Tablet. We’ve been working very hard during this difficult time to best serve our students and families while adhering to the guidance from the County Health Departments, the Illinois State Board of Education and the Center for Disease Control regarding educational issues related to the virus.”
