2019-2020 Registration Information
K-8th grade students will need to be registered on Tuesday, August 6th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm or on Wednesday, August 7th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at all Massac Unit #1 elementary/junior high buildings. Parents of new and returning students should register their students during this time.
Registration fee for K-8 students is $17.00.
Wednesday, August 14th will be the first day of student attendance with a 2:00 pm student dismissal.
During the summer, we will be transitioning our student management system from InformationNOW to a new system called Alma. Due to the scope of this project, we will be unable to offer online pre-registration for 2019-20 as we have the previous two summers. After this transition is complete, we will be able to offer online registration again for future school years. We apologize for this inconvenience.
New students must first prove residency with Lisa Monkman at the Massac School Board Office located at 401 Metropolis Street in Metropolis prior to registering at their school building. For more information about residency requirements, please contact Lisa Monkman at (618) 524-9376 ext. 101.
New students will also be required to bring a valid, state-issued birth certificate.
School bus service will begin Wednesday, August 14, 2019. For more information about the bus service, please call Robinson Transport at: 1-855-527-6171
Cafeteria account deposits should also be made at this time. Free and reduced applications will also be available during registration.
Physical forms are required for all new students, and returning kindergarten, sixth grade, and ninth grade students.
Blood lead screenings are required of children below the age of six if they have not been previously screened.
Parents encouraged to plan ahead for emergency situations
It is not too early to begin thinking about putting emergency procedures in place for your child should there be an early dismissal of students, without advanced knowledge. These dismissals might occur as a result of bad weather, a loss of electricity or water, a bomb threat, or excessive heat or cold within classrooms.
Sometimes the emergency may involve only one school, but most of the time, it is district wide. Later in the winter, weather conditions pose problems that may create a need for an early dismissal. When time allows and where contact with parents can be made, the parents of kindergarten children are notified first. Please ensure that the telephone number given on the first day is a reliable number and that numbers are updated with the school office as changes
