TOWNSEND -- Spaulding Memorial School will be holding the kindergarten information night on March 13, from 6-7 p.m. in the gymnasium. Snow date will be March 20, from 6-7 p.m.

Spaulding Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration for the 2014-2015 school year will be held at Spaulding Memorial School on Tuesday, April 1, and Wednesday, April 2. Registration hours are 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Children do not need to be present to be registered. All children who will be five years old by August 31 are eligible. It is important that parents make every effort to register their child at this time.

Parents should bring in the original of their child's birth certificate, which we can copy, and proof of residency. The copy will be left with the school as part of the child's school records.

Health requirements include the following, which must be completed and returned to the school nurse by June 1: a current physical, three doses of Hepatitis B, five doses of DPT, four doses of Polio, two doses of MMR, two doses of Varicella or a physician certified, reliable history of chicken pox disease, lead test data and results and a current physical.

All parents are urged to register their children at the scheduled times so that children will be eligible for kindergarten screening held in April. Parents will be able to sign up for the kindergarten screening at registration time.

Questions regarding health requirements may be directed to Mrs. Hampson, our school nurse. All other questions should be directed to Miss Janda, principal, at 978-597-0380.

Kindergarten program, medical screening and registration packets will be available in the office for anyone unable to make the information night.
