• First Day Ready Header

     The information on this page will help you prepare for the 2023-24 school year and will be updated to help answer questions you may have about schedules, school supplies, transportation, fees, school meals, and more. As a reminder, the first day of the 2023-24 school year for Kindergarten through 12th grade students, as well as our students in Transition programs, is Tuesday, August 15, and the first day for those in preschool is Tuesday, August 22. 

  • Registration 

    Online registration for the 2023-24 school year officially opened on April 1. All families who have a child or children in any grade from preschool through 12th grade are encouraged to register as soon as possible. By registering this spring, you can help the District better plan for staffing and transportation for next school year and help ensure our schools are ready to welcome students on the first day back.

    NEW THIS YEAR! All currently enrolled students must be registered no later than May 31. 

    No instructional fees are being collected; the District is covering the cost of instructional materials fees for the 2023-24 school year.

    Parents who need assistance with the online registration process should contact their school. If you know of a family new to U-46, please urge them to start the registration process as well.

    School Supplies

    U-46 will provide school supplies for students entering kindergarten through 6th grade, as it did last school year. Families will just need to provide a backpack. Students will receive their supplies at their schools once classes get underway. Students in middle and high school will find details on their school supplies on their school’s website.

    School Meals 

    Info coming soon. 

    Health Requirements

    Students who are entering kindergarten, 6th, 9th, or 12th grade must meet certain health requirements, and U-46 students will be excluded from classes if they do NOT have these requirements on file by the first day of school. You can find details on the requirements, as well as the necessary forms, in English and Spanish on this page, in the Health Services section of the U-46 website. 

    If you have questions or concerns about health requirements, please contact our Health Services team by using Let’s Talk.  

    Class Schedules 

    Info coming soon.

    Bus Routes 

    Information on bus stops and schedules will be available for students who qualify for transportation services in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal about a week before the first day of school. We will be hosting a bilingual Call Center before school starts for parents/guardians who have questions or need help resolving issues. We will share that Call Center phone number and hours with you closer to the start of school, and the information will also be posted at the top of the u-46.org/transportation page. 

    In the meantime, you’ll want to make sure to download the Versatrans “My Stop” App to your phone. The My Stop app lets parents or guardians see, in real-time, the location of their child’s school bus, which is especially helpful when there are weather or traffic delays. For step-by-step instructions on how to download the app to your smartphone, sign in, and navigate the app visit our My Stop webpage.
