New Student Registration for Grades 1-12

To register for the 2021-2022 school year, please review and follow the process below.

Due to COVID-19 and the current mandates put forth by the state of CT, a 14-day quarantine is in effect if you have moved here from out of state or out of the country, and/or if you have traveled out of the state of CT. As a result, out of state travelors cannot enter any school buildings or Town Hall for 14 days from time of arrival and must have no symptoms of COVID19. 
Children may not  start school for 14 days from time of arrival and have no symptoms of COVID-19 on start date. For further information on COVID-19 restrictions, please contact Mercy Hetherington, or your child's school nurse. 

Complete the online registration form. You will need to sign up with an active email account to use the online registration system. Be sure to save your account information in case you need to return. If you do not have online access, you may visit the Lucy Robbins Welles Library or make an appointment at our Residency Office.
