Classes begin the week after Labor Day and end in early June. With some modifications, we follow the Pentucket School District calendar for school vacations. A complete school year calendar with all the holidays and special events is provided to parents at orientation prior to the start of school in September.
School Closings Procedure
Please note that when school is cancelled in the Pentucket School District due to inclement weather or other natural disasters, Perry Park Preschool will also be closed. If there is a delayed opening in the district, Perry Park will be open at 10:45. Class will be held from 10:45 – 12:30 and no lunch bunch will be held that day.
These school closings and delayed openings are announced on most of the major television stations. Certain other conditions may necessitate the closing of school: power outage, loss of heat or water, or fire. If these or any other situations arise while classes are in session, the children will be kept as safe and comfortable as possible until all parents can be notified and the children are picked up from school. Classes may also, on rare occasions, be cancelled due to teacher illness or an event at the church. Days lost to school closings are not made up at the end of the school year; however, children may be offered a make-up day on an individual basis if class enrollment allows for it.
