Welcome to Moose Hill School!

August 8, 2019

Dear Families,

We will welcome children and their families to their new classroom for orientation on Monday, August 26.  For the AM session, orientation will be from 9:30 – 10:30.  For the PM session, orientation will be from 1:00 to 2:00.  You and your child will meet the teacher, see the classroom, find their cubby, and get acclimated to the classroom.  You will have the opportunity to ride the bus with your child if you choose.  The buses will load up in the front of the building for a short ride, and then return to Moose Hill.  All are welcome to ride the bus with their child.

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 27. The AM session meets
8:37 – 11:20 and the PM session meets 12:30 – 3:13.  This is a regular day of school.  Please be sure to check the bus schedules to find out where the closest bus stop is to your house and the approximate time your child will be picked up.  In order to conserve fuel and shorten bus routes, we try for area stops when possible. You and your child should be out at the bus stop at least 10 minutes prior to the estimated time of arrival.  For drop off, please be sure you are on time to the bus stop.  We cannot drop a child off at an unattended bus stop.  Please be sure to have your identification ready until the bus driver gets to know you.

If your transportation information has changed, please call the office immediately.
  Bus changes made after August 16 may not be in place for the first day of school. It takes the bus company time to set up bus routes, and changes are difficult to accommodate with short notice.  Bus lists will be posted on the Londonderry School District web page by the second week in August. (

We know the first day of school can be difficult for parents of young children.
  Having a positive outlook will help your child feel more comfortable and confident as they start this new school adventure.  We do not recommend that you drive your child to school.  They will miss out on the excitement of the bus ride and any instructions the bus driver has for them.  During the first week or two of school, the buses do not always run exactly on time, so please be patient, as we all adjust to this new schedule.  Your child will be returned safely to your home even if it’s a little later than anticipated.  We will take good care of them.

Please ensure that your child comes to school each day prepared to have a wonderful and exciting day.
  They should bring a nutritional snack and drink and be well rested in order to help them meet the demands of their day.

Additionally, Open House will be held on Thursday, October 10 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
  This is your child’s opportunity to show off their classroom and some of the great things they have done.  More information regarding Open House will follow as we get closer to the date.

Kindergarten is a fun and exciting time for children.
  We have excellent teachers, and much is accomplished in the two-and one-half hour program.  Our hope is that you and your child will enjoy being part of our Moose Hill Community.  We look forward to a year of learning and growing together!

Have a smile on your face and love in your heart.
