With the summer coming to a close, the fall begins and with it so does a new school year. We’re excited for the upcoming school year and for ensuring that New Haven students receive a superior education as work continue School Change.
When the school year starts there are many questions to be answered. What time is my child’s school bell? Is there an orientation that I can attend? To help families as much as possible, the New Haven Public School system has created a website where you can find answers to all of your back-to-school questions.
For school registration, here is what you need to know. For English, click here and for Spanish here.
