2017-2018 All Day Kindergarten Registration (after the lottery) 

If you receive notification after the lottery that your child has been accepted in All Day Kindergarten, please return this All Day Kindergarten commitment form with the $450 June deposit. This form can be emailed to registrar@abschools.org if you make the deposit online. The deposit is due by May 15, 2017 to retain the space.

Please do not send the deposit or form unless you receive confirmation of placement in ADK from the registrar.

2017-2018 Kindergarten Registration Schedule

Parents, read the Kindergarten Information Schedule and join us for Kindergarten Information night on January 10, 2017 at the High School Auditorium. Note that pre-registration opens on January 11, 2017 and closes on March 7, 2017. To be included in the lottery, make sure to register by this time. 

You can upload documents during the pre-registration process to the website. The check list of documents is to the right. New families must bring original documentation to complete the registration process by attending one of the onsite registration times. Families who have students already attending Acton-Boxborough do not need to attend if they uploaded all the required documentation.

Kindergarten Transportation Form

Use the Kindergarten Transportation form to let us know where the bus should pick up and drop off your child each day including AM sessions, PM sessions and all-day kindergarten (ADK). This form also lets you opt out of bus transportation. Please return the completed form by FAX (978-264-3344) or mail to: 
Acton-Boxborough District Schools Transportation Department
16 Charter Road, Acton, MA 01720
