Welcome to the Putnam Public Schools District Website

This website is meant to provide meaningful information about the Putnam Public School system.  We are proud of the education that we provide each of our students in the Putnam schools but seek your feedback and input to help us improve the educational process for all students as well as the website.  I hope the website gives you an overview of our mission as a school district along with information you need to become an active participant in your child's education.  Only working as a team can we ensure that your child obtains the education that they need to compete in the 21st century.  Further information regarding the district can always be obtained by contacting any of our schools or by calling the Board of Education office.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can assist you and your child in any way.  Sincerely,  Mr. William Hull
