Daniel J. Bakie Elementary School

2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR


Welcome to our Bakie School Community! All of our registration information is listed on this webpage. PLEASE READ THROUGH THIS ENTIRE WEBPAGE.  Registration must be done using a computer (doesn't work well on a mobile phone).  Please note that it takes 2-3 school days to process a student's registration once we receive ALL the required documents.

To be eligible for kindergarten, your child's birthday must be between 10/1/2016-9/30/2017.

Please gather these documents as you will be asked to scan and upload them as part of the Online Registration.  If your child currently attends preschool here, you do not need to provide us with these documents again.  You only need to complete the "Back to School" forms.

Proof of Identity - the parent/guardian is to provide a photo ID

Birth Certificate - Please provide us with a copy of your child's original birth certificate.  You will get an email so that you can upload the document securely.

Proof of Residency - Proof of two of the following documents is required: utility bill, signed lease/rental agreement, settlement document on a new home, property tax bill, property deed, notarized letter from builder or realtor.  Please note that automobile registrations, driver's license, or town resident forms are NOT accepted.

If you are living with a resident of Kingston or Newton, NH, that resident must provide the acceptable residency documentation listed above and complete a Residency Affidavit  Form which must be notarized by the Superintendent's office.  The Residency Affidavit will list all family members living at that address.  Please schedule an appointment by sending an email to Phyllis Kennedy at pkennedy@sau17.net to have your document notarized.

Physical & Immunization Records - Each child is required to have a complete medical examination within one year prior to entry into school. NH Law requires all children to have had immunizations for DPT, Polio, Mumps, Measles, German Measles, Chicken Pox, and Hepatitis B prior to entry to school.  If your child has not had a physical exam within this time, you must make an appointment as soon as possible.  Your child will be allowed to enter school upon confirmation of the appointment.  

Custody/Restraining Orders - It has become necessary for us to address the legal issue of custodial rights, restraining orders, etc.  If there is a restraining order or limited access rights against either parent, it is the responsibility of the custodial parent to supply us with a copy of the legal paperwork stating this.  This document will be placed on file until further notification. Please be advised that unless we have a copy of the legal documentation in our possession, we will release your child to either their natural parent or to anyone else that you give written permission. 

Emergency Contacts - you will need to provide at least one emergency contact and phone number in the event you cannot be reached.  You will also need to provide us with your child's doctor and dentist's contact information.


Scanning Documents - Please scan documents before uploading (rather than taking a picture)
