    SCHOOL NEWS

    NEW! From the Superintendent: The climate and culture of our schools plays an important part in improving student achievement. Please read Mr. Murphy's letter explaining the process of gathering data and feedback. 

    From Central Office: We continue to need substitutes in our schools. We need subs for teachers, paraprofessionals, and nurses. At this time, the requirements to be a substitute teacher have been eased. This is a great opportunity for college students who are pursuing a degree in education to get hands-on experience with children. If you are interested in applying or have questions, please contact Janet Terenzi at Central Office (860-379-8546) to begin the process.

    2021-2022 Kindergarten Registration: If your child is kindergarten eligible, turning 5 on or before January 1, 2022, please complete the Early Registration Census. Please fill out the Kindergarten Enrollment Packet and mail/drop off all required documents to either Bakerville Consolidated Schoolor New Hartford Elementary School as soon as possible.
