Frequently Asked Questions
I am new to SAU#9. What do I need to do to register for school?
To register for school, you will need a copy of your child's birth certificate, immunization records, as well as proof of residency. A complete physical exam at the parents' expense is also required (NH
Law RSA 200:32 and 200:33) of all children within the last 12 months upon entering school, or with a practitioner’s documented appointment date for conditional enrollment. For proof of residency parents/guardians may share a copy of a lease, mortgage bill, or a utility bill that has the physical address listed on it. To begin the registration process, click here!
My child is ill. Do I need to keep him/her home from school?
While school attendance is very important, children who are ill should be kept at home. If your child has a fever of 100F or higher, he or she should stay home until fever free without medicine for 24 hours.
I'd like to volunteer. What do I need to do?
All volunteers in our schools must complete a criminal history records check through the state of NH Criminal Records Unit, with results received at the SAU office, BEFORE they will be allowed in schools. It is suggested that you come to the SAU office first
to obtain a background check packet and get the required authorization form notarized. For printing, it is recommended to go to a state police barracks (example: Troop E), as this method is quicker. Please allow up to 4 weeks for background checks to be processed.
The cost for a criminal background check for volunteers is $30.75. Once it is completed, you will be added to the volunteer list and receive an annual assurance letter. Signing and returning the letter annually before the deadline, will keep you on the volunteer list without having to go through the background check process again.
My child wants to play sports at middle and/or high school. What are the requirements?
All children who play sports at the middle and/or high school level must have a recent physical on file. Physicals are valid for two years. To see what sports are available, pleas
e contact the individual schools.
What time will the bus arrive to bring my child to school?
