Dear Parents/Guardians,

Tewksbury Public Schools is excited to offer many preschool options for the fall of 2019.  Open enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year for all preschool programs begins on January 28th, 2019.

There are a variety of preschool experiences including part-time and full-time classes. Preschool classes are offered at the Dewing and the Heath Brook Schools. Additionally, Tewksbury Memorial High School offers a part-time preschool program.

Enrollment for all programs will be completed through Community Pass:

https://register.communitypass.net/TewksburyPublicSchools. It is recommended that you visit this website PRIOR to the enrollment date to set-up your account. There will be two information sessions on Tuesday, January 22nd that you are encouraged to attend.  At that time, there will be a question and answers session.

Information regarding program specifics at each school will be posted on the TPS website on January 16, 2019. Hard copies will also be available at the Heath Brook School, Dewing School and the Office of Community Services as of January 16, 2019.

It is important to note that all tuition slots at the Heath Brook and Dewing Schools are determined by residency and have limited openings for each program. Thus, please review the program offered at your local school. The program offered at the High School also has limited openings but is open to residents in any part of town.

  • Anyone with a child in the TPS already has a login and password. If you need your login and password please email Maura Rauseo at mrauseo@tewksbury.k12.ma.us or call 978-640-7831 x218.  Please write down your login and password and keep it for future use as you will likely need it again this school year.  If you do not have a child in the system yet, please CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT adding yourself and your child to the account.
  • Click “Browse Activities & Register” and then pick the program you want to register for:

“2019-2020 HEATH BROOK PREK (PRESCHOOL)”  Either 3 or 4 Year old Program

“2019-2020 DEWING INTEGRATED PRESCHOOL”

“2019-2020 DEWING LONGER DAY OPTION”

  • Follow the directions and verify that all information is correct.
  • You can register and pay for any tuition/fees right online. The first month (Aug/Sept) tuition is due at the time of registration to hold your spot.  This deposit is applied to Aug/Sept and the next time you will receive an invoice will be for Oct 1.   Invoices are emailed to you a few days before the first of the month and tuition is due on the first of the month, every month.  The monthly tuition is the same amount each month, even if there are more or less days in the month, as tuition is a yearly charge divided into 10 equal payments, Aug/Sept thru June.   

Ex.  The Integrated Program is $2400 a year divided by 10 to make it $240 each month.

  • To choose credit card payment or EFT (checking account payment) choose credit card. There is a 2.9% convenience fee for credit card/debit card payments and $0.40 fee for checking acct payments (EFT – routing number and checking acct. number).
  • If you do not want to pay online due to the convenience fee, please process the registration and choose “send payment” at checkout and proceed from there. We cannot accept cash.  Be sure to write what you are paying for and your family ID in the memo section of your check.  Drop off or Mail checks made out to “Town of Tewksbury” to: Community Services, 139 Pleasant St., Tewksbury, MA or give it to the teacher at the school your child attends and they will interoffice it to our office.
  • You will be emailed a receipt for any transactions you make.
  • With this new system you may monitor your account, make payments, print receipts, print flex spending receipts and year end statements (called flex spending in the system) all in one place.
  • Be sure to opt IN for the cell phone /text messaging as we may use text messaging to communicate important information such as cancelations, closures, evacuations, etc.
  • If you have questions about registration and payments please contact Maura Rauseo at mrauseo@tewksbury.k12.ma.us or 978-640-7831 x218.
