Parents must bring proof of residency, the child's birth certificate and updated health/immunization records.

A lottery number for the full-day classes will be issued with the registration packet. According to a BPS release, the numbers will be posted on the Bourne school website by March 17.

The full-day lottery will be held at the Jonathan Bourne Public Library, 19 Sandwich Road in Bourne on Wednesday, March 26 at 6 p.m. The lottery is open to the public. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
