Camp Rolly 2020 Cancelled

The Select Board regrets to announce that with all the complexities and uncertainty of the pandemic, that Camp Rolly will be cancelled for 2020.

Many factors led to this decision. The amount of work still to be done to get the program ready, the difficulty in completing that work under the current circumstances, and the desire to be as considerate as possible in giving families and employees ample notice all contributed to the Select Board’s determination that it was best to make that decision earlier rather than later.

The Town appreciates the enormous disappointment this is to families among so many disappointments provided by the current circumstances.

Kindergarten Registration

The Rollinsford Grade School is still accepting applications for Kindergarten Registration. Forms can be found on the school’s website, under the “Resources” section. Or, if you would prefer a packet mailed to you, please email your request and include your mailing address, phone number, child’s name and date of birth.
