 A virtual kindergarten screening information night will be held on Wednesday, May 17th from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.  The link to this virtual session will be sent to all families in May.  This session will be hosted by the Early Childhood Coordinator Shelly St. George and Colleen Mucha, District Director of Teaching, Learning & Support.

Kindergarten screening will take place during the last week of May and the first week of June.  Specific dates and times will be communicated with parents and guardians once we have received your child’s completed registration forms.  

Student names for those on our incoming kindergarten list were gathered from our preschool records and from the five district towns local census information. If you do not attend preschool in the QRSD or have not answered your town census, please contact Jessica Bennett at jbennett@qrsd.org or by phone at (978)355-4668, ext. 8500 with your child’s information.
