Welcome to the Nashua School District!

We look forward to welcoming our kindergartners to our schools for the upcoming school year.

The Nashua School District will register incoming kindergartners using a lottery-based process, starting Thursday, January 26, 2017.  The revised process alleviates the need for parents to wait in line, as was the case at some of our elementary schools in previous years.

Elementary school principals are looking forward to welcoming their newest students and want to be sure Nashua residents, who have children turning five years of age by September 30, 2017, are aware of the three major steps to the kindergarten registration process:
  • Registration Packet Download or Pick-up
  • Completed Registration Packet with Required Documentation Drop-off
  • Lottery, if needed
 
Registration Packet Pick-Up
Starting no later than Wednesday, January 4, 2017, parents can download registration forms by clicking here. As an alternative, parents may pick up registration forms at their neighborhood elementary school from between 10:00 am to 2:00 pm each school day, Monday through Friday. 
 
Completed Registration Packet Drop-Off
Starting Thursday, January 26, 2017, parents may drop off completed registration packets in the main office of the neighborhood elementary school. (Snow date: Tuesday, January 31, 2017)

                Amherst Street Elementary School
                Broad Street Elementary School
                Dr. Norman W. Crisp Elementary School
                Fairgrounds Elementary School
                Ledge Street Elementary School

                Charlotte Avenue Elementary School
                Main Dunstable Elementary School
                New Searles Elementary School
                Sunset Heights Elementary School
 
Each registration form should be complete with required documentation:
 
  • Completed Registration Packet Forms
  • Immunization Record
  • Original Birth Certificate
raised seal
age requirement: child must be five (5) years old by September 30 
  • Proof of Residency
two different utility bills or
current lease agreement and/or mortgage agreement
  • Copy of most recent, within the enrollment year, medical exam
  • Legal paperwork, if applicable
 
If child is living with a host (someone other than child’s parent or guardian), the host must be present at the time of registration and provide a notarized host residency form and a photo identification in addition to the documentation listed above. A host residency form may be picked up at the neighborhood elementary school.
 
Lottery
If your child is scheduled to attend an elementary school that has a half-day kindergarten program, you will be asked to note your preference for the morning session of kindergarten or afternoon session of kindergarten. 
 
If needed, on Monday, March 20, 2017, each elementary school will hold a lottery to assign incoming kindergartners to either the morning or afternoon session. As a child’s name is drawn, the session request will be honored until the session is filled to capacity. 
 
Assistant Superintendent Roland Boucher wants parents to know that all children who register will be assigned to a kindergarten session for the 2017-1018 school year. Principals will send a letter to parents following the lottery to confirm placement.
