Town Council Votes on Final Education Budget
On March 5th the Town Council voted to adopt the final education budget for the coming year. We will need to identify $559,043 in reductions to the budget we approved in January. In addition, the Board will need to cut additional funds to cover over $200,000 of recently revised pension obligations.
We will look for areas to reduce that least impact student learning. Reductions to the budget will be on a future Board of Education agenda.
The BOE Budget webpage provides budget documents and additional information on the budget process and upcoming meetings.
Any child who will be five years of age on or before January 1, 2021 and meets all residency requirements is eligible to begin kindergarten at the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
Please complete the online pre-registration for your kindergarten student as soon as possible. After pre-registering students online, parents/guardians will be prompted to schedule a brief session with our registrar at the central office. Visit the Kindergarten Registration website for more information.

Glastonbury Public Schools is pleased to introduce Nutrislice, an interactive school lunch menu program. Nutrislice offers parents, students, and staff easy-to-use features for reviewing nutrition and allergen information for the foods we serve at lunch.
Summer Enrichment Camps
School staff members will be offering a variety of summer camp programs for students in June, July and August. Because these camps are tuition based, there is no cost to the Board of Education. Please visit the Summer Camps page of our website to learn about the camps and to register. A limited number of program brochures are also available in school offices and the district's central office.
School Calendar Artists
Our student calendar artists were recently recognized at a Board of Education meeting and reception. The calendars hang in thousands of homes across Glastonbury. The students' artwork is also on display at the Glastonbury Town Hall Gallery through April.
