Current Parents


A few quick reminders to help get you through the school year. 

Please refer to your Parent Handbook for more detailed information.


Weather Related: HKR follows the Stratford Public School schedule during inclement weather. 

  • If Stratford is closed, then we are closed. 

  • If Stratford has a delayed opening, we are on a 1-hour delay. 

  • If Stratford has an early closing, we hold morning classes as usual but the afternoon class is cancelled.

  • If any unusual circumstances force a school closing, you will be notified by phone asap.    


Outdoor Playtime: We will be playing outside in the play yard every day unless it is raining or the wind chill is below 20 degrees. 

  • Please dress your child with appropriate clothing and outerwear each day including hats, mittens, and boots when appropriate. 

  • Due to Connecticut regulations of teacher/child ratios, all children will go outside together.


Snack Time Information:  Daily snack reminders:

  • Please pack your child a nutritious snack and a drink of water, milk, or 100% juice.
  • HKR has a nut, peanut, and peanut butter free policy.  Please read the ingredient labels on any items your child may bring to snack and make sure that there are no nuts on the list. 
  • All staff is certified in First Aid, CPR, and emergency medication.
  • We ask that lunch box/bag be clearly labelled on the outside and that all reusable parts be labelled as well.

Parent Participation:  Parents are always a welcome visitor!


  • Be sure to read our parent bulletin boards in the front hall when you drop off/pickup your child. There will be important information posted about that day's class activities as well as additional information about HKR, events in our area, and parent info.  Don't forget our HKR Parent's Bargain Board where you can post ads for children's items that you wish to buy/sell such as clothing, furniture, toys, etc.
  • See the Parent Participation list and feel free to join us when your schedule allows.  Come and help your child experience one of our many HKR visitors including the Beardsley Zoo, Mystic Aqaurium, and the Milford Audubon Society.  
  • Want to come in and play or schedule a birthday celebration? Simply ask a teacher to sign you up!  At HKR, we celebrate yearly birthdays and, in case of a summer birthday, half-yearly too!
  • Parents are also invited to join our HKR Parents Committee.  This group plans out-of-school activities, parent nights, and acts as our emergency telephone calling tree.  Please contact Lynne Goetz if interested.
  • Would you like to just visit to play and observe your child with their classmates?  Would you like to share a special occupation or hobby with the class?  Just ask Lynne to put you on the schedule.



Tuition: Tuition is due on or before the first of the month.  Payment options are as follows: 

  • 10 installments may be paid monthly from June through March.
  • 2 installments may be paid on June 1st and November 1st. 
  • 1 installment may be paid on June 1st. 

Returning registration forms for the following year are handed out in early December and are due back before the end of December with registration fee payment.

Progress Reporting: HKR provides (1) In-Person and (2) Telephone Parent/Teacher conferences. 

  • In-Person Parent/Teacher conferences are held in the beginning of March and a schedule will be posted on the bulletin board in February.  Because many conferences are going on at the same time and space is limited, absolutely no children may attend.  These conferences are to allow one-on-one discussion of your child's progress between yourself and a teacher.  Please make arrangements for your child/children during these brief sessions.
  • Telephone Conferences are held in October and May.  One of your child's teachers will call you after school hours to discuss your child's progress.

Book Club Orders:  Scholastic Book Club flyers are distributed monthly.  Please make checks payable according to the details on the order form.  Do not make book order checks payable to HKR as they will not be accepted!  All orders are due by the end of the week they are handed out.


Important Dates:  Please mark your calendar and plan to attend:

Tuesday/Thursday parents: Save the Thursday before Memorial Day for our annual picnic.

Monday/Wednesday/Friday parents: Save these dates:

  • The Monday before Thanksgiving (1 adult guest)
  • The Friday before Mother's Day (all moms). 
  • The morning class Graduation is on the Wednesday after Memorial Day.
  • The afternoon class Graduation is on the Thursday after Memorial Day. 
  • Graduation ceremonies are held at 6:30pm and space is limited to 2 adult guests only.
  • Kindergarten registration begins in February.  Check the bulletin board or ask Lynne for important registration info for your town.
