Kindergarten Frequently Asked Questions
What supplies will my child need?
Please know that all students will have everything they need for school supplies when they enter in September, but we will send home a list of suggested items that are appreciated by the classroom teacher to enhance their classroom supplies.
What bus is my child on?
You will find out what bus your child is on in late August. It is posted on the Hanover Schools website at www.havoverschools.org and can be found in the Hanover Mariner newspaper.
Each student will be assigned to a bus for transportation to and from school. We cannot efficiently and safely accommodate requests for multiple bus assignments or requests to ride other buses. The bus company and the Hanover Police safety officer establish routes and neighborhood bus stops. Kindergarten students sit at the front of the bus. Kindergarten students wait at the front of the bus dismissal lines.
What if I need my child dropped off at a different location other than my home?
The following is our Transportation Policy: If your child will be attending one of the day care facilities on our bus routes, it will be necessary for you to fill out a Bus Transportation Request Form. Students will be transported to and from the SAME place EVERY day of the week. If your child is being transported to one of the day care facilities on one of the bus routes, it will be necessary to have him/her transported there Monday through Friday or for you to transport your child from school on the days he/she does not go the day care facility. This request replaces the assigned bus. Requests must be made by filling out a Bus Transportation Request and all forms must be received prior to June 7, 2013.
Do you have an afterschool program? What is SCORE?
The SCORE Program provides before and/or after school care to the students of working families at Center/Sylvester Elementary School. Students in Kindergarten through Grade 4 may enroll. In addition to the before and after school programs, SCORE also provides a Kindergarten program for students during non-classroom hours. If you have any questions, please contact Tammy Zukauskas, Program Coordinator at 781-829-0406
