Registration will be held at Sandwich High School, room A110, REGARDLESS of which K-8 school your child will attend. Parents are strongly encouraged to register their child during these sessions to assist the schools in planning class sizes for the September opening. Registration packets may be obtained at the K-8 school offices prior to registration, filled out in advance, and then brought to registration at the High School.

Please note that the Sandwich Public Schools offer a full-day kindergarten program at a cost of $3,000.  If you will be registering for full-day kindergarten, an initial payment of $600 is required at the time of registration.  Financial aid is available for those who qualify, so please contact Monica de la Hoya in the Business Office for more information at 508 888-1054 ext. 17 or by email at mdelahoya@sandwich.k12.ma.us. There is no cost for ½ day kindergarten.

The following documentation will be required at the time of registration:

  • birth certificate
  • 2013 physician’s report of physical exam including blood lead screening
  • physician’s certification of all required immunizations – diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, MMR, hepatitis B series, varivax (or doctor’s certificate of chicken pox disease)
  • proof of residency and any court order or decree regarding custody
  • Again, if you’re registering for full-day kindergarten, an initial payment of $600 is also required or the financial aid form must be turned in.

UPDATE . . .

Clarification on NEW AGE REQUIREMENTS:

  • Children whose 5th birthday occurs prior to September 1st may enroll.
  • Children whose 5th birthday occurs between September 1st and September 30th may be accepted based upon kindergarten readiness screening and mutual agreement of the parent and Superintendent of Schools.
  • Children whose 5th birthday falls between October 1st and October 31st may be accepted based upon kindergarten readiness screening but solely at the discretion of the Superintendent of Schools.

There will be an informational night for parents about the kindergarten program on Monday, April 8th, at 7:00 p.m.  It will be held at Sandwich High School, in the small cafeteria.
