Welcome to Sandwich Public Schools Online Registration

Please note: School registration is a two-part process.  The form at the bottom of this document is a pre-registration form only and does not secure a seat in school for your student. Follow the Registration check list below to fully enroll your student.

Here you will find our registration check list as well as a link to register your child for the current school year or next school year. Please review the registration check list and complete all the forms necessary to register your child. If you have questions please contact the school your child will be attending or email us at [email protected].

Early Childhood Partnership with Joyful Noise and the School for Early Learning

Sandwich Schools is currently working directly with the School for Early Learning and Joyful Noise Pre School through a grant with the state.  As such if your child is currently attending either of these schools please contact [email protected] with your child's name, the grade that you are looking to register for, a full name for the primary contact parent and your email address and indicate which preschool you are coming from IN PLACE OF completing the pre-registration form that is at the bottom of this page, instead we will put your right into the system for step 2 of the registration process.   If you do not live in Sandwich and you want to enroll your student into Sandwich for Kindergarten next year you will still need to complete the School Choice application but not the pre-registration page.  If you are looking to go to the integrated preschool at Forestdale from Joyful Noise please note that we have limited spots and can not guarantee that your child will be able to attend the integrated PK program.   Please contact director Jennifer Munk [email protected]

Accepted Proof of Residency Documents

As part of the online registration, you will need to provide the school with proof of residency documents from the list below. The files can be uploaded with the online registration system or brought directly to the school for approval. The list is broken out by categories and you should only pick 1 from a particular category. You need to provide two documents but you can only bring one from any given group from the list below.
