  • Have Questions? We Have Answers!
    Most unique questions will be answered at our Frequently Asked Question Night in February (stay tuned for a date and time). 

    When does NES confirm a space for my child?
    Upon completing your registration appointment and submitting the documents required for registration, the Central Registrar will confirm that your child's enrollment is complete. 

    When do I find out who my child's teacher will be? 
    Classroom placements are announced at the end of August.

    I work normal business hours. Are there after-school programs? 
    Contact the Nantucket Community School about Extended Day program!

    I am unsure of my plans for September. Should I sign up? 
    YES! We use this info to know how big our K class will be. It is much easier to remove your child from our list in August if you change your mind than to start the process in August from the beginning.

    Are sign-ups and registration the same thing? 
    No. Sign-ups are so we know who to contact about making Registration appointments. I.e. Registration makes it official! 

    Can I request my child be placed (or not placed) with another student?
    Contact Principal Kim Kubisch with your request. 

    I am confused! Who can I call?
    Central Registrar Sarah Erichsen
    508-228-7285 x1149 or email erichsens@npsk.org
