Yes, a parent panel presentation is scheduled for December 13th 6:30-8:30 at the Noyes School, 280 Old Sudbury Road. A panel of kindergarten teachers, administrators and parents will be available to present curriculum, program and registration details as well as answer questions.
If the interest exceeds the number of designated full-day kindergarten slots available in any of the schools then a lottery will be held at that school in February 2013.
You will find the Massachusetts state curriculum standards in a document titled Kindergarten Learning Experiences at http://www.doe.mass.edu/frameworks/current.html
The Sudbury Public Schools encourages the registration and enrollment of all age-eligible children. Please confer with your child's preschool teacher while making this most important decision. Waiting until later in the spring of 2013 will help you consider your son/daughter's social emotional skill levels and expected readiness for the challenge of next year. Ask yourself 'What programming might I imagine my child in during the spring of 2014 as he/she approaches age six?'
After your child has registered, you will receive an invitation in spring 2013 to a Kindergarten Orientation scheduled at your elementary school. This orientation will include a special event for students as well as a tour and parent/principal informational session.
Contact Linda Karpeichik, Early Childhood Director in the Early Childhood Office for registration materials. Linda_Karpeichik@sudbury.k12.ma.us. Parents should bring proof of residence or, alternatively, a signed Purchase & Sale agreement and/or approved Bank Commitment letter. Your child's original birth certificate and current health records will also be required.
Both Full Day K and Half Day K are available to families. FDK (6 hrs/day) is fee-based with a sliding scale available (based on gross monthly income & family size). HDK (2.5 hrs/day) has no fee. This year, the demand for HDK decreased and as such two morning sessions are offered at the Haynes and Noyes Schools. Both are morning sessions with all students returning to their home district next year for first grade.
After returning your child’s preregistration packet along with a copy of your child's 1) Birth Certificate and 2) Proof of Residency to the Early Childhood Office at 40 Fairbank Road Sudbury, a full registration packet will be e-mailed to you as an electronic link (or as a hard copy upon request).
Please send the second completed registration packet directly to your child's elementary school.
Pre-registration begins in November 2012 with a general mailing to families identified on the town census with children age-eligible for Kindergarten. Included in the preliminary mailing are 'Kindergarten Registration', 'Full-Day or Half-Day Kindergarten Preference' & 'Not Attending Public School' forms.
A student eligible for Kindergarten must be 5 years of age on or before October 1, 2013.
Sorry, there are no exceptions.
