Air Conditioning APPROVED!On February 13 the Town Council voted to approve the funding necessary to install air conditioning in the classrooms of four elementary schools (Buttonball, Hebron Avenue, Hopewell, Naubuc). Installation at the elementary schools is planned for this spring and summer. On March 21 the Town Council voted to begin the process to air condition Gideon Welles School as part of the 2018-2019 CIP (Capital Improvements Program) budget. We appreciate all the people—parents, teachers, students, and community members—who have taken time to support this project over the years. Note: Nayaug Elementary School, along with Glastonbury High and Smith Middle Schools, are already air conditioned. When all of our schools are air conditioned, all of our students and staff members will be able to focus on teaching and learning every school day.

School staff members will be offering a variety of summer camp programs for students. Because these camps are tuition based, there is no cost to the Board of Education. For a complete listing of summer enrichment opportunities, please visit our Summer Camps website. Program brochures are also available at the Glastonbury Public Schools Central Operations office, 628 Hebron Avenue.

Kindergarten Registration—Any child who will be five years of age on or before January 1, 2019 and meets all residency requirements is eligible to begin kindergarten at the start of the 2018-19 school year. A letter will be mailed in January to all potential students of whom our district is aware. The letter includes instructions for our registration process. After pre-registering students online, parents/guardians will be prompted to schedule a brief session with our registrar at the central office. Families will need to bring the necessary documents for the registrar to scan. This will complete the registration process. Please complete the online pre-registration for your kindergarten student as soon as possible. Appointments with the registrar are available starting January 2nd. Visit the Kindergarten Registration website for more information.
