School Tours, Registration is now open

The tours of Holly Pond School for the 2019-2020 school year can be scheduled by clicking on the Sign-Up Genie link below. Please select the time you would like to come for a tour of Holly Pond School.  Please note that the tours will be segmented by age groups entering school in the fall. There are 8 spots available for each time slot. The cut off for the age to enter a class is December 31. For example, to enter the 2-year-old program your child must turn 2 by December 31, 2019. We ask if possible that the tours be Adults Only as it is difficult to give a tour with small children.
