Parents of children who are eligible for Kindergarten in August of 2024 as well as Grade One (1) students who have been attending a private kindergarten program, are urged to register their children. Children must be five (5) years of age as of September 1, 2024 to be eligible to attend Kindergarten in August 2024.

Connecticut State Education Law requires that all school children have a health examination prior to entering kindergarten. We strongly encourage you to have your private physician perform this examination prior to August 1, 2024 so that your child may be admitted to school on August 30, 2024. Your private physician is the health individual who knows the most about your child's health and can contribute to the preservation of your child's health.


Completed physical paperwork must be returned no later than August 14, 2024 in order for students to start school.


Along with the health examination, a hematocrit or hemoglobin blood test, vision, auditory, and postural screening must be performed, plus adequate immunizations. The following are the immunization requirements prior to registration:
