Welcome to Ledyard Public Schools

Superintendent Hartling

Dear Ledyard Public Schools community,

As the weather starts to warm up and the flowers begin to bloom, I wanted to take a moment to update you on the happenings within our district.

Despite the challenges we have faced over the past several years, our students and faculty/staff have continued to demonstrate resilience and adaptability. Our team continues to go above and beyond to provide engaging and effective learning experiences, while our students have continued to show their dedication to their education.

In addition to our ongoing efforts to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for our students and staff, we are continuing our work on the next version of the Ledyard Public Schools Strategic Plan. Our plan will provide a roadmap for our priorities and areas of focus for the next five years. I am attaching the BOE approved calendar for the 2023/2024 School Year. I hope this helps as you plan for your summer. 

Kindergarten Registration is open! Early registration assists the district in proactive planning for staff, busing and various supports. Kindergarten Screening will be taking place May 10-24 at Gallup Hill and Gales Ferry Elementary Schools. To be eligible for kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year, children must attain the age of 5 on or before January 1, 2024. You can schedule an enrollment and screening appointment by clicking here.

Thursday, June 15 is our official last day of school, and it is an early release day. Promotion ceremonies at GHS, JWL and LMS will be held the last week of school and will culminate with the Graduation of the Class of 2023 from Ledyard High School on June 16th. 

As always, I am incredibly proud of our students, faculty/staff, and community for their resilience and commitment to excellence. I look forward to working together to continue to provide our students with the best possible education.
