Registering a New Student
Welcome to Newtown!! The counseling department will be glad to assist you with the registration process and to help transition your student to our school. Parents should call or stop by the Counseling Office to receive a registration packet that details the information needed before your child can begin attending school. These packets can be picked up our mailed to your home, so please let us know what is most convenient for you. If you have a copy of your child's previous report card, please include that in the packet, as it is helpful when determining scheduling and placement. Before your child can begin attending school, there are two forms of documentation that we must receive:
|1) As per district policy, proof of residency is required at the time of registration. This may include:
- Copy of Contract; or
- Copy of Lease; or
- Builders Agreement; or
- Three proofs of residency; including utility bills, cable bills or bank statements with name and address on it (post office boxes are not acceptable proof)
||2) Newtown Middle School's Nurse must also clear you medically, meaning that you have completed the necessary medical forms included in the registration packet and our nurses have confirmed that your child meets CT guidelines for attending school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Nurse's Office directly at (203) 426 - 7636.
In terms of orientation, any student who has begun the registration process and will be new to 7th grade in the Fall, will be invited to a new student orientation with the Reed Intermediate students in April from approximately 8:30-10:45. During this time, you will be given a tour of the school and will have an opportunity to ask questions. Any student entering NMS after the school year has begun, will be given a personal orientation by one of the School Counselors after we have received the initial paperwork and proof of residency has been established. Please call the Counseling Office to make an appointment and to request registration materials at (203) 426-7644.
