LACONIA — Superintendent Dr. Phil McCormack noted yesterday that the first day of school is Monday, August 31 and for those families who have yet to register their children there are procedures to follow.
Parents of elementary school children who have not registered should go to the SAU offices on Harvard Street and, depending on where the family lives, will be assigned one of the three city elementary schools. Kindergarteners must have a birth certificate so the district knows their exact birthday and to determine if they are eligible for kindergarten.
Once elementary students are assigned a school, parents should bring biographical and contact information, proof of residency like a lease document, tax bill, utility bill, court documents stating custody arrangements, if necessary, immunization/ health records and a sign "request of records" form that allows the administration to get records from previous schools.
For registration purposes, parents of middle schoolers, or grades 6 through 8, should report to the Laconia Middle School and parents of High School students should go to the high school.
If a student is new to the High School, Principal Jim McCollum asks that copies of transcripts should be provided so the administrators can properly schedule classes. Freshman will start of Monday to get a day alone in the school to acclimate and sophomores, juniors, and seniors start on Tuesday.
McCollum said that once a new student is registered at the high school, he or she will be contacted by the school counseling department to schedule a meeting to review academic records and create an academic schedule.
