EPPING — Parents and guardians of children eligible to attend kindergarten are invited to join school staff for a meal and registration program from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at Epping Elementary School.
The school offers a free half-day kindergarten program and three full-day classes that charge tuition for the extra half day. All Epping children who will be 5 on or before Sept. 30 may attend kindergarten.
Parents and guardians should call 679-8018 to let the school know if they intend to register a child for the 2014-2015 school year and whether they will be able to attend the registration session.
At the registration meeting, parents will meet staff and other parents, complete the registration process and schedule children for screenings, learn about the kindergarten program and take a tour of a kindergarten classroom. The school will serve pizza and healthy snacks.
Parents and guardians are asked to bring a copy of their child’s birth certificate and immunization records. According to New Hampshire state law, children cannot enter school without these documents. Parents are urged to schedule appointments with their physicians for a health examination if they have not done so.
The February meeting is for parents, guardians and the school staff. Children should not attend, but they will be able to visit the school at other times.
