One of our neighbors asked us to pass along the following information.
On Monday January 23rd the Rockland School Committee approved the creation of a full day Kindergarten beginning this fall. The program will be fee based with full pay at $3000 per year and students on free and reduced lunch paying $2000 per year. This rate in comparable to many surrounding towns with Abington at $3000, Whitman-Hanson $3200, etc. Payment may be setup for one time payment, quarterly or monthly depending what best fits parents financial situation. The hope is to have at least one full class and if enough interest we could have two. There will be an informational meeting for parents on February 1st 7:00pm at the Jefferson School. Pass the word along to those living in Rockland and maybe those thinking of moving to our town. Next year will be an exciting one with Full Day Kindergarten, New Middle School and a renovated High School. Certainly a positive trend in the educational landscape for Rockland students.
