NEWTON —If your child will be five years old by September 30, 2013 and you are a resident of Newton, New Hampshire, he or she is eligible for kindergarten in September of 2013. Registration materials will be available on March 4 at the Memorial School office and can be picked up any school day between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Please bring your child’s original birth certificate when registering your child.
New Hampshire State Law requires all children to have had immunizations for DPT, Polio, Mumps, Measles, German Measles, Chicken Pox, and Hepatitis B prior to entry to school. They also require each child to have a complete medical examination within one year prior to entry into kindergarten. A form to be completed by your physician will be with the registration materials. We recommend scheduling your child’s physical exam as soon as possible. Students may not enter kindergarten without these completed forms. Please plan to complete the registration process by June 3, so that your child may be assigned to a classroom.
An orientation and information night for parents of incoming kindergarten students will take place on Thurs., April 4, at 6:30 p.m. at Memorial School. School personnel, the principal, assistant principal, school nurse, guidance counselor and kindergarten teachers, will be available at the orientation to answer any questions.
All incoming kindergarten students will participate in a screening process. Student screenings will take place Thurs., April 11 and Fri., April 12.
Newton residents should call Memorial School at 382-5251 to schedule a screening appointment.
