Please take your time and don't be in a hurry if you are picking up and dropping off, obey the traffic laws and follow the rules on our school grounds This includes STOPPING when a bus has the lights flashing and the stop arm out. Thank you for your assistance and cooperation in making sure that our kids are safe!

Here is the 2018-19 calendar here or under the calendar button on the right. Our Google event calendars are also available there and will sync with your phone or other personal device. Please let us know if you have any questions at all


Registration Information

Registration for the 2018-19 school year has passed, but here is everything you need to know for registration, including details regarding supply lists, registration fees, residence requirements, updated student handbooks, immunization and physical requirements and other details. Following are a few of the important details.


Online Fee Payment Option

We have implemented a new online fee payment system. This is being provided as a convenience to parents for paying registration, breakfast, lunch and other necessary fees online with your personal credit or debit card. In person registration is still required, but this will be another option for parents to pay fees not only at registration, but also throughout the school year.


Online fee payments are made through TeacherEase and if you wish to pay online at registration, you must bring your current TeacherEase username and password. Parents and students with an iPhone can also download the TeacherEase app from the App Store. Parents of students who are new to the district, or who have not previously had an email address on file with the district, will not be able to pay fees online on registration day, but will be able to do so going forward once the email address is on file and the student is registered. Also, graduation, yearbook, Raider Gear and similar fees cannot be paid online.


Finally, please be aware that there are convenience fees associated with online payments, none of which are collected by the school district. There is a $0.31 fee from TeacherEase for each transaction regardless of the total amount, as well as a 2.987% charge from the financial institutions for the total transaction. Please plan accordingly and let us know if you have any questions about this at all.


Updated Parent Contact Information and Current E-Mail

Please make absolutely certain that we have your updated email addresses and phone numbers. This is very important for how we communicate with you, and it is also required for programs such as TeacherEase. Thank you very much for your assistance with this.


Monitoring Your Child's Progress

Gone are the days when you had to wait for a progress report or a report card to see how your child was doing in school! Please be sure to access and monitor your children's academic progress and grades online. Please contact your child's school or teacher if you have any questions, or if you need any assistance.


Last But Not Least...Keeping You Informed

One of our biggest goals is to communicate effectively with you as parents, and we do so through multiple methods. Besides our very important email, text messaging and calling system (be sure we have your updated contact information and email address so you don't miss information), we also have a large presence on Facebook at PeruESD124 where many district announcements are included.


Each building also has a Twitter account @PeruParkside and @PeruNorthview. You can download our free app at the Apple Store and at Google Play by searching for "Peru Elementary District 124". And finally, you can always go to www.perued.net to find the information you need as well.
