Registration for 2013-14 Returning Students and Fee Payment Options
We are streamlining the registration process. This year, returning student packets will be sent home rather than mailed. The oldest sibling in a family will receive one packet with all the information. Packets will be sent home with your child on Friday, May 17th. All registration documents should be completed and returned no later than June 21st.
Also, all families will be required to prove residency this year. A form will be in the packet with instructions. Please make sure copies of the three residency documents are returned with the other registration materials.
In addition to the packets, all documents will also be available online on the District’s website at www.sd13.org.
For your convenience, you may pay fees online. A link to the e-pay system will be listed under the registration tab. Instructions for this process are included in registration packets. We are pleased to offer this service to our families, and hope that you find it easy and convenient.
Finally, for those families eligible to receive free milk or lunch, the letter will be available on the website in early July.

Playground Fun For Everyone
The DuJardin Elementary School project "Playground Fun For
Everyone" is a project that impacts more than DuJardin School
- it also impacts the community. DuJardin is in the process of trying
to raise $250,000 to rebuild a section of their playground to be
all-accessible with wheel chair access and house many components
to promote various types of play.
