Welcome to the Swansea Public Schools Digital Backpack!

Following is the list of flyers that would have come home in paper format, now easily viewed digitally.  We hope to provide parents, guardians and students with direct access to information and events in our community in a manner that streamlines access and reduces waste.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION FOR THE 2024-2025 SCHOOL YEAR  

      The Swansea Public Schools announces registration for children who will be five years old on or before August 31, 2024. New students who plan on attending 1st grade, who have not previously enrolled, should pre-register at this time. A child must be 6 years old by the same date to be eligible for 1st grade. 

      We did a postcard mailing in early December to age eligible children who are listed on the Swansea Town census. This is to PRE-REGISTER and confirm that you intend to enroll your child. If we hear from you, you will be mailed a registration packet by early February. If you are new to Swansea please contact your closest school office to have your child’s name added to the list.     

      If you have a child who is age eligible who will be attending a private school, your child is welcome to participate in the developmental screening portion of the registration process. The purpose of the screening is to find children who may have any of the following problems: seeing, hearing, speaking, getting along with others, physical coordination, or other conditions that would affect learning.

   Please call 508-679-4049 (Hoyle) or 508-675-7899 (Gardner) if you have not been contacted by mail or if you have any questions.

Full Plate Project

YMCA Southcoast’s partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank, the Full Plate Project started as an emergency response to pandemic-related nutrition insecurity in April 2020. It quickly grew into one of the largest hunger relief agencies in the Southcoast region. In 2022, the Full Plate Project distributed more than 1.64 million pounds of healthy food throughout southeastern Massachusetts. Food is distributed at mobile markets at five Y branches, delivered to affordable housing sites, and via community partnerships to people we wouldn’t otherwise be able to reach. Y community markets are open to all Southcoast residents in need. Each household receives prepackaged fresh, frozen, and pantry food items while supplies last. There are no town residency, eligibility, or Y membership requirements.

DCF Foster Families

Is there room in your home and heart for a foster child? The Department of Children and Families is actively recruiting foster parents for children in Swansea coming into foster care. We are searching for individuals or families with the love and patience to help foster children. We are looking for long-term foster homes, but also have a need for emergency, short-term and respite homes. Our goal is to provide our foster children with a supportive and healing environment in a home in their own community until they can be reunited with their families, or an alternative permanent plan can be made on their behalf. If you have questions or are interested in learning more about foster care please contact Roxanna Trujillo, Foster Parent Recruiter: E-mail: roxanna.trujillo@mass.gov Phone: (508) 894-3844
