First Day of School for Kindergarten - Staggered Start

Kindergarten First Day of School:
- Last name begins with A-M - July 31st (AM only). Stay home on August 1st.
- Last name begins with N-Z - August 1st (AM only). Stay home on July 31st.
More details about this first day will be sent out to kindergarten parents later this summer. All kindergarteners will start their regular school schedule (8:30-3:40) on August 2nd.
