Guidance

Do you have a child you need to register as a new student?


Welcome to Dover !!  If you have a child you need to register, please contact Debbie McCann - Guidance Assistant/School Registrar @  603-516-7207 or email her @  d.mccann@dover.k12.nh.us.

Registrations are done by appointment so that we may coordinate the appropriate staff members to discuss your child's entrance to our school.  Typically a new students first day of attendance will be 48 hours after the registration is complete.  This time allows for evaluation of the child’s placement, schedule creation, & teacher notification (certain circumstances may alter this timeline).  

Registration Requirements:
All registration requirements are due at the time of registration. Please bring them wiht you to your appointment.  Failure to provide a requirement may unfortunately delay their start date.
