Current School Records Release Form

In order for your child’s school records to be forwarded to Seven Hills, his/her current school should receive a written request signed by you. Please print the Release of School Records form found below. When you have completed and signed it in the appropriate areas, submit it to your child’s school office in order for them to remit your child’s final records and progress reports to us by June 15 or as soon as possible. If your child currently attends a school that does not have written reports (i.e. an early childhood program), please disregard this form.

Dress Code

Toilet-training Requirements

Pre-kindergarten students must be toilet-trained before the first day of school. Seven Hills will accommodate “accidents,” however, when the teachers deem accidents too frequent, parents will be asked to keep their child at home until he/she is toilet-trained. If a child is not toilet-trained by the start of school, we are happy to work with you to establish a delayed start date.

This is not applicable to students entering the Pre-kindergarten for two-year-old program.

Fall Sports Registration

Kindergarten boys and girls can play fall sports if they turn 6 by July 31, 2018.

Forms and any payment may be mailed to:

            The Seven Hills School Athletic Department
            Attention: Amy Ilg
            5400 Red Bank Road
