This week, a Shrewsbury Patch reader what the class sizes are expected to be for kindergarten placement.

"We will have 22 in each class at full-day program," said Bryan Mabie, principal.

Principal Alice Brennan said that they are shooting for 20-22 as well.

"It’s hard to say because we have people registering daily," she said. "Our full-day kindergartens will likely be between 20 and 22 with half days between 18 and 20. This leaves room for the new registrations we will receive over the summer."
