General School Information
Welcome to the Winslow Township School District Website resources page for parents. This page is intended to support parents in our district and provide connections to what is happening within our schools and our community.
Enrolling in School
Children must be four years old on or before October 1st to enroll in the preschool program, and five years old on or before October 1 to enroll in kindergarten. All new students are required to provide a birth certificate or other accepted proof of birth date, as well as immunization records for registration. Additional information regarding registration can be found here.
Excused Absences: If your child is absent, call the school office before 9:00 a.m. to let them know the reason and when your child will be returning to school. Students are asked to bring a written note signed by parent/legal guardian upon their return.
Unexcused Absences: If you do not communicate with the school about your child’s absence, their record will show an “unexcused absence” for that day. Unexcused absences may affect the child’s grade. Regular attendance is extremely important to your child’s learning. Certain non-medical absences may be recorded as “unexcused” even with a note from home.
Tardiness: Please make sure that your child arrives at school on time every day. Students who are late to school must be signed in by, or have a note from, a parent/legal guardian in order to be admitted to class.
In cases involving court-ordered custody of children, schools must have legal documentation (parenting plan) of restrictions to ensure compliance with court orders.
Anyone wishing to register to vote or to change their registration may obtain a mail-in application at any of our schools or at the District office.
