Student Registration 2017-2018

Welcome to Simsbury Public Schools!

Please contact Susan Caccamo, Enrollment Coordinator, at 860-323-8140, or by email at scaccamo@simsbury.k12.ct.us to begin the registration process for the 2017-18 school year. We will ask for a small amount of preliminary information so we can plan on your child(ren) while you are completing the registration process. If you received a kindergarten packet at your school's orientation or by mail, you do not need to contact the Enrollment Office, as we already have your child on our eligible list.

Your child is not considered registered until all documentation has been completed and submitted to the Enrollment Office. Please do not submit the Release of Records form (not used with first time incoming kindergartners) to your child's current school; we will take care of sending for records and we want a copy of the release in our files. Documents should be returned to the Enrollment Office in person, via postal mail, fax, or email attachments. Documents attached in emails must be scanned and saved as PDF files; photographs of documents will not be accepted.

Birth Certificate copy for each student you are registering. We will need the full certificate, not the wallet-size card. If you are missing yours, certificates can be obtained in either the town where your child was born, or in the town where the mother was residing at the time of the child's birth.

Special Services. If your student receives Special Services at his/her current school, please provide a copy of their latest IEP or 504 Plan.

Registration Form and Release of Records Form

  • The Registration Form provides us with your student's demographic data, as well as parent contact information. Please download the Registration Form

These forms can be filled out online if your browser is Internet Explorer or Chrome. Firefox does not support online forms. After you fill it out, you will need to print them and sign them. Electronic signatures will not be accepted.

Medical Requirements and Forms

Emergency Form ~ Please fill out one form for each student you are registering. 2017-18 Emergency Form

Proof of Physical and Immunizations per the 2017-18 State of Connecticut Requirements, and Simsbury Public Schools Requirements. Parents/guardians need to fill out page 1 of the State of CT Health Assessment Record; your physician will fill out page 2-3. Physicals must be dated within 12 months prior to the start of school in Simsbury. If their last physical is older than 12 months, a new one will be required before your student can start. All items on the form with an asterisk are required by the State of CT for entry into school.

Students entering from another Connecticut school can obtain their proof of physical/immunizations from the student's previous school or from your physician.

Students entering from out of state do not need the physical done by a CT physician, but the CT State Health form needs to be filled out by your physician based on an up-to-date physical. Immunizations must be current as required by the State of CT for school entry.

Students entering from outside of the U.S. must have a physical done by a U.S. physician prior to entry into school, and the CT Health form must be filled out with the results of that physical. Immunizations must be current as required by the State of CT for school entry.

For students participating in interscholastic sports at Simsbury High School, please contact the High School Athletic Office at 860-658-0451, option 3, for additional physical requirements.
