TOWNSEND — Spaulding Memorial School will hold a Kindergarten Information Night on March 2 from 7 to 8 p.m. in the gymnasium. The snow date will be March 3 from 7 to 8 p.m.

Kindergarten registration for the 2011-2012 school year will be held at Spaulding Memorial School on Monday, March 14, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Tuesday, March 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Children do not need to be present to be registered. All children who will be 5 years old by Aug. 31, 2011 are eligible. It is important that parents make every effort to register their child at this time.

Parents should bring a proof of residency, original copy of their child’s birth certificate, which we can copy. 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, 2011: a current physical, 3 doses of Hepatitis B. 5 doses of DPT, 4 doses of Polio, 2 doses of MMR, 1 dose of Varicella or a physician-certified, reliable history of children pox disease, and a lead test.

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

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

Thank you for your cooperation.
