- Proof of Residency: This can include an executed purchase and sale agreement, a recent utility bill, or a signed lease agreement. The aim is to establish your family’s residence within the Hingham Public Schools district.
- Immunization Records: Ensuring your child’s vaccinations are up to date is not only a requirement but crucial for the health and safety of all students.
