It’s that time of year again when we are preparing our lists for next year’s incoming kindergarteners. Parents of children living in Durham and Middlefield who will be five (5) years old on or before January 1, 2018 must register their child to attend kindergarten in September 2017 or apply for a waiver of attendance. In Regional School District #13, children may attend kindergarten in either the Contemporary Program or the Integrated Day Program. Parents need to choose the appropriate program for their child prior to kindergarten registration. School visits and information available at the schools will assist parents in making their choice.
The Contemporary Program serves children in grades K-4 and is housed at Brewster School for grades K-3. Grade 4 students will attend Memorial Middle School next year. The Integrated Day program serves students in grades K-4 at John Lyman School. While the two programs share many similarities, they also have some distinctive differences that must be considered when deciding which program is best for each child.
If you have a child that is eligible to begin kindergarten, please call either school to make sure you are on the list to receive the December mailing that explains the registration process.

Regional School District 13 prides itself on being a strong community partner. We are happy to help publicize events and activities of interest to our staff and students. Flyers will be placed in a publicly-accessible Google Drive folder linked on our website and also posted prominently on the district Facebook page.
Community groups wishing to submit a flyer for review and posting should prepare an electronic version (PDF format is preferable) and send it to email@example.com. Flyers or announcements submitted via other means may not be distributed.
Flyers will be reviewed and posted twice a month. Unfortunately, we cannot honor requests to re-distribute flyers or send out reminder notices.
to the John Lyman School website. We hope you will find the
site easy to use and informative. There are so many wonderful
things happening at John Lyman School, and our goal is to use the website
to share them with you. Our teachers also have individual classroom websites, and you can access them under the "Classroom Pages" button at the top of the screen.
