Greetings PK Families,

As we head into one of the most exciting times of the preschool year, TRANSITION TO KINDERGARTEN, I want to give begin laying the foundation by providing you with a few points to get us started.

  • As a Head Start, Integrated Pre-K, or PK STEAM Academy student, your "PKer" is already enrolled in Enfield Public Schools!
  • You do NOT have to complete a separate registration for Kindergarten.
  • If you have ANY questions about this please reach out to Kathy or myself kpiccuirro@enfieldschools.org; jvalley@enfieldschools.org
  • Breathe, you have a whole community working to make this transition as successful as possible for your family.
  • Your PK teacher will reach out to let you know which Primary school your child will be attending.
  • Stay tuned for more transition information as we get closer to the end of the school year. I recognize you have a lot of questions about busing, visiting your new school, meeting new staff members, etc. EPS is working hard to get this information to you during these uncertain times.

In this time of uncertainty and chaos, what can we do to help children cope? Research tells us that while stress can negatively impact child development, children are resilient.

Leave with some basic practices to try at home to help everyone in the family feel more secure.
