Registration for new students who have not previously registered will be held on Monday, August 24th, from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM at Maple Hill School. Parents/guardians should bring the certified full copy of the child's birth certificate, current mortgage statement/deed or lease, current utility bill, photo ID of parent/guardian, and any pertinent legal documentation, such as custody papers.
The first day of school is Wednesday, September 2nd and the day begins at 8:55 AM with our red carpet ceremony. Parents/guardians are invited to join our paparazzi as students stroll down the red carpet! It is a full day and lunch will be served. We will dismiss at 3:25 PM as usual. Please be sure to send written dismissal instructions with your child on the first day if he/she will not be taking their usual bus to your home address. Also, any special dismissal instructions should be sent in writing for at least the first 2 weeks of school as we are unable to sort through all of the yellow transportation cards immediately as they are turned in. We DO NOT assume that a child will follow last year's dismissal plan. Buses may run late the first few weeks of school, so please keep that in mind if your child does not arrive home in a timely manner. Often routes need to be adjusted so that things run more smoothly.
Kindergarten Orientation for all new kindergarten students will be held on Tuesday, September 1st, at Maple Hill School. Parents/guardians and kindergarten students are invited to attend. Orientation for Mrs. May’s and Mrs. Talarico's classes is from 1:15 – 2:15 PM. Orientation for Mrs. Bisson’s and Mrs. Young's classes is from 2:30 – 3:30 PM. Orientation will include meeting the teacher and classmates, a brief classroom visit, and a short ride on the bus. We look forward to seeing all of you on September 1st!
Letters for all incoming kindergartners will be mailed in mid-August. Included in the envelope will be a letter from your child’s new teacher. One adult and each child should wear the matching name tags provided in this envelope to Kindergarten Orientation.
