Preschool and Kindergarten Registration Information

Gabriel Abbott Memorial School

Registration for Incoming Preschool and Kindergarten Students Procedure

In order to register for preschool, students must be 3 years old by August 31st, for Kindergarten registration students must be 5 years old on or before August 31st to be eligible to enroll.  Parents are asked to bring a birth certificate, immunization record, and an updated physical, or have a date secured for that appointment.  An orientation day will be set for all incoming kindergartners and preschoolers in June (please watch our website for the date, which will also be posted in “The Berkshire Eagle”).

Chapter 766 Massachusetts General Laws requires schools to provide screening for children ages three and four whose parents believe that their child has a reasonable likelihood of having a condition that may interfere with future learning.  Parents are asked to call the special education office at 664-4655 to arrange an appointment for an evaluation.  Kindergarten and preschool screening will be conducted in October.
