Join us for Kindergarten Information Week
Welcome incoming Kindergarten Class of school year 2021-2022! We are so happy that you are joining us and we are here to help you!
Kindergarten Information Week kicks off this Sunday, January 10th at 3pm. In past years we would host one Kindergarten Information Night where all of the incoming kindergarten parents/guardians would attend a presentation and then visit the cafeteria where various department representatives would be present to answer questions.
In this new virtual world, we have adjusted to be able to provide you with the same helpful information and access to to our departments. We are proud to present several 'Welcome to Kindergarten' videos where you will learn about our schools and some of the services that we provide.
The videos will go 'live' following the schedule below. Links to these videos will be shared in a new Smore, similar to this one, on Sunday, January 10th. Please tune-in when they launch or at your convenience after!

Kindergarten Information Booklet Links
Framingham Public Schools Website (Overview)
The homepage contains the main navigation to be able to access School and Department websites, as well as other important information. The rotating image carousel on top contains links to important current information. District News contains district-wide communication or announcements. The Press Release section contains anything news and noteworthy that has been shared with local media outlets for wider distribution.
The most important and relevant information here is focused on new student registration - both for Kindergarten or any grade for families who move into Framingham.
Each school has a website and while these pages are a work in progress, you will be able to find contact information and news/updates. We are currently working on streamlining these pages and updating them with current information.
Each department such as Transportation, Office of Multilingual Education, Special Education, Health and Wellness, etc has their own website. Here they provide information on initiatives, contact information, access to forms, and more.
