Tips for Kinder Parents

Instructions for Parents/Guardians on Their Kindergartener's First Week of School

Please join us for a Meet & Greet with your kinder teacher on Tuesday, August 6th at 7:30 to 9:30. This is an informal meet and greet and you are invited to come between these hours. Please bring your Kindergartener to school for their first day on Monday, August 12th between 7:15 - 7:25 am.  Take them directly to their classroom.  Introduce your child to their teacher. Be reassuring and brief.  Kinder Parent & Principal Orientation is on the first day of school, Aug. 12 at 8a.m.  If your child is enrolled after 8/12 in Kinder, your child's teacher should have a packet of info and forms for you to complete and return to the school.  Dismissal  time is at 1:38 pm.  on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Wednesdays are minimum days, which means early dismissal at 12:43 pm for Kinder.  Kinder parents pick up their child at the side gate by the Kinder playground. We will all work together to ensure that your child transitions comfortably into their first year of school!
