New Student Registration
Students in Manchester are assigned to schools geographically. To register your child for enrollment you should go to your neighborhood school. If you are not sure which school to go to, you can look it up online (LINK TO GIS), ask a neighbor, or call the school district office at (603) 624-6300.
WHAT TO BRING FOR REGISTRATION:
Families are encouraged to download, print and complete all registration forms prior to coming to the school to register. CLICK HERE to download registration forms and to view required items.
If you have questions about immunizations, contact the Manchester Health Department at (603) 624-6466. If you have lost or are not able to immediately obtain birth records, proof of residence, or Social Security documentation you can still register your child under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
HOWEVER, CHILDREN MUST BE IMMUNIZED TO BEGIN ATTENDING CLASSES. * If your child’s immunizations are not up to date contact your physician or the Manchester Health Department, tel. (624-6466) which offers free immunization clinics.
Registration for kindergartners and incoming first graders takes place in the spring for the following September. Registration days will be advertised in the media and on the school district website. Students must be 5 years old by SEPTEMBER 30 in order to register for kindergarten. Your child will also need to have a complete physical exam, or an appointment to have one, before starting school.
If you are new to the district and have a child with Special Needs or Limited English Proficiency, your child may be assigned to a magnet program in another school. However, you should still register at your neighborhood school.
Also, at the time of registration, you will be able to inform the school of any desired electives, if applicable, such as band or chorus.
