2020-2021 Registration Underway


The District 153 Office will be closed Aug. 11-14 to catch up on registrations. While we will be unavailable to help you in-person on over the telephone, you can still register your child online.

After completing the online portion, submit your documents—please include your application number—one of 3 ways:

  1. Upload your documents electronically via Parent Portal (don't have access to a scanner? photographs of your docs will work)
  2. Email them to our registrar, janet.krusza@hsd153.org
  3. Drop off copies in our secure 24/7 lock box located at 18205 Aberdeen (off the parking lot, under the District Administrative Center sign)


We are pleased to announce that our Online Registration system (OLR) is all set up and ready for you! Please read the following options carefully to ensure that your registration process is as smooth as possible. 

Returning Students/Families

All returning students should be registered through your parent portal account. Once you register your returning student(s), you can also add a new student, if necessary, within the same online registration by selecting "add new student."

To access online registration within your parent portal account, please follow these steps:

  1. Login to your parent portal account
  2. Click on top left menu to access the drop-down menu
  3. At bottom of the drop-down menu, select More
  4. On the next tab, select Online Registration
If you do not have a parent portal account, click here. Complete the parent portal sign up form and email it back to parentportal@hsd153.org. If you need help accessing your account or resetting your password for your existing parent portal account, please email parentportal@hsd153.org or call 708-799-8721, ext. 2403.

New Students

All new families should click the link below to be taken into the online registration process. We strongly encourage all new families to sign up for a parent portal account as it is the best way to make sure you are up to date on all things District 153. There will be more information coming later this month regarding parent portal procedures and how to get an account.
