Parents of children who are eligible for kindergarten in August of 2018, as well as Grade One (1) students who have been attending a private kindergarten program, are urged to register their children at the elementary schools in their district on these dates and time.  Children must be five (5) years of age as of December 31, 2018 to be eligible to attend Kindergarten in August, 2018.

Parents must bring a copy of the child’s official birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency. Proof of residency documentation includes: driver’s license, house deed or lease and two utility bills. Children should have the required immunization inoculations and boosters for the following: Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, DPaT, Varicella, Hib (Hemophilus Influenza Type B), and Hep B (Hepatitis B), Pneumococcal, and Hep A.

The 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 15, 2018 so that your child may be admitted to school on August 27, 2018.  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 by 8/15/18 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:

1.      DTaP– At least four (4) doses.  The last dose must be given on or after 4th birthday

2.      Polio – At least three (3) doses.  The last dose must be given on or after 4th birthday

3.      MMR – Two (2) doses separated by at least 28 days, 1st dose on or after the 1st birthday

4       Hib – One (1) dose on or after the 1st birthday for children less than 5 years old

5       Hep B – Three (3) doses, last dose on or after 24 weeks of age

6.      Varicella (Chicken Pox) – Two (2) doses separated by at least 3 months, 1st dose on or after the 1st birthday or verification of disease

7.      Pneumococcal – One (1) dose on or after 1st birthday for children less than 5 years old

8.      Hep A – Two (2) doses given Six (6) calendar months apart, 1st dose on or after 1st birthday

If you have any questions, feel free to discuss them with your child's private physician or contact the principal of your child's school.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Michael Wilson

Superintendent of Schools

Holiday Greeting from Mike Wilson

As the holiday break approaches, my Central Office Team and I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon the successes of the first portion of the school year. Seymour’s students and faculty continue to shine each and every day. Our students have continued to work hard and to demonstrate excellence in the classrooms, on the stage, and on the athletic field.  Our visits to the various classrooms throughout the district give a true perspective of the examples of best practices that our teachers share each day with our students.

Hello to the Seymour Public School Community,

As the holiday break approaches, my Central Office Team and I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon the successes of the first portion of the school year. Seymour’s students and faculty continue to shine each and every day. Our students have continued to work hard and to demonstrate excellence in the classrooms, on the stage, and on the athletic field.  Our visits to the various classrooms throughout the district give a true perspective of the examples of best practices that our teachers share each day with our students. 

Our teachers have been continuously working hard to create and implement engaging lessons that motivate all of our students to learn and achieve. Over these past few months, two of our Middle School students as well as two of our High School students were recognized for outstanding academic achievement as well as for their commitment to community service. It has also been an exciting time for our senior class as they have begun to receive their acceptance letters to some very prestigious learning institutions.

In addition, we have had the opportunity to witness a tremendous sense of community and volunteerism as students participated in events such as the hope tree, donations to those affected by fires, the coat drive, donations to Valley United Way, and the toy drive just to name a few.  Our students’ sense of community as well as their sense of helping others in need is truly heartwarming and for that, we are very proud.  Recently, we enjoyed performances from several of our musical groups as well as a spectacular production of “It’s a Wonderful Life” at our high school.  Our Middle School choir also had the opportunity to perform at Radio City Music Hall and they did a fantastic job.

Our student-athletes had very successful fall seasons and are off to a great start this winter. Here are just a few of the highlights from our fall sports teams: our Girls Volleyball team won the NVL division and made a great run in the state playoffs, our football team had a good year and reached the state playoffs, we had individual champions in swimming, and we had individual champions in track. Our high school Debate Team continues to excel and hosted their first competition this year.

As you are aware, the weather has not been cooperating, but we have made every effort to keep our schools snow and ice free so that our students can enter our buildings safely. The town’s Public Works Department has done a terrific job maintaining our roads to allow for safe bus travel.  Please remember to visit the district’s website at: http://www.seymourschools.org as well as our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/SeymourPublicSchools in order to keep up to date on all activities and events.

We are continually thankful for our team (administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, custodians, bus drivers, secretaries, nurses, food services, lunchroom aides, and our support staff) who really care about student achievement and have the best interests of our students at heart.  We are also once again thankful for you, the parents that have kept the faith in us.  You continue to share your most valuable possession with us.  We are grateful for your support and appreciation which truly helps to keep us going. 

On behalf of the Board of Education, my Central Office Team and I would like to wish all of you and your families a very Happy Holidays and our wish is that the New Year brings continued success, good health and happiness to all.

With great pride,

Michael Wilson

Superintendent of Schools
