2023-24 Breakfast and Lunch Prices
Student breakfast is $2.00 per meal, student lunch is $3.25 per meal, and extra milk is $.45. Reduced price information based upon family income eligibility guidelines will be available during registration. Also, families will be notified if their children have been directly certified through the State of Illinois to receive free lunch benefits. This notification will be mailed out from the district office in mid-July.
All students enrolling in the district for the first time are required to present a certified birth certificate, which can be obtained from the county in which the child was born.
Proof of Residency in the District is Required
Illinois statute requires public school students to be residents of the districts they attend. This law is stringently enforced in the district, and we do not take students on a tuition basis from other districts. To enroll a child in Lostant CUSD 425, permanent residency of the custodial parent or legal guardian, as well as the child, is absolutely required. All custodial parents and legal guardians are REQUIRED to provide TWO FORMS of evidence of CURRENT RESIDENCY within the boundaries of the school district. There are no exceptions to this very important requirement.
IMPORTANT – Two Forms of Identification Required to Register
All parents and guardians are REQUIRED to provide TWO FORMS of evidence of CURRENT RESIDENCY within the boundaries of the school district. Proof of residency must include a driver’s license or other state-issued identification. The second identification must include your name and address on one of the following:
- Water Bill
- Electric Bill
- Gas Bill
- Tax Bill
- Telephone Bill
- Rental Lease Agreement
- Mortgage Statement or Coupon
If it is found that a child is illegally registered in the district, the child will immediately be removed from district enrollment and other legal means may be pursued, including the charge of out-of-district tuition for each day the child was illegally enrolled. Permanent residency of the parent or legal guardian, as well as the child, is required. If you have any questions, please contact the Superintendent, Bob Ketcham at (815) 368-3392. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with this important matter.
IMPORTANT – Immunization and Physical, Dental and Eye Exam Requirements
According to the Illinois School Code and Board of Education Policy 7.100, all students are required to show evidence of a physical health examination and proper immunizations upon entrance to any Illinois public school for the first time, including preschool, kindergarten, grade 6, grade 9 or when transferring from a school outside of Illinois. Students not in compliance may not attend school until meeting the requirements. Religious and medical exemptions can be made according to the documentation included in the Board policy link above.
All physical exams are due by the FIRST DAY of student attendance. In addition to the physical examination requirements listed above, students in kindergarten, second and sixth grades must provide evidence of a completed dental exam. Students entering kindergarten must provide evidence of a vision exam performed by a licensed Illinois optometrist or ophthalmologist. This is also due on the first day of school. Students new to the district must participate in speech and language screenings.
IESA Sports Physicals
Students participating in any athletic activities throughout the school year must have a completed physical examination prior to the first day of practice for their season. There is a new required IESA Sports Physical Form that can be printed here. The first four pages must be completed by a parent or guardian prior to the physical.
Students who reside more than 1½ miles from the school in which they attend, or who live in an area approved as a hazardous zone by the Illinois Department of Transportation, will be provided free bus transportation to and from school. More information will be available at registration, and bus routes will be announced prior to the start of school.
Opening Day and 2023-24 Calendar
The first day of student attendance is Friday, August 18th with a 3:30 p.m. dismissal. The first week of school will run a 1:30 p.m. early dismissal schedule. Please view the 2023-24 calendar here.
