North Glendale Family Update

February 14, 2021

Good morning!

This is the time of year we often have to pause and re-calibrate on our school routines and procedures!


Processes that help keep our classrooms distraction free, our office less chaotic and our transportation routines smooth include:


  • Limiting early dismissals.
  • If an early dismissal is a necessity, please understand that we will not be able to have your student waiting for you at a certain time. We will call your student down when you are at the front door.
  • Not picking your student up after 3:00.
  • Putting a visible sign in your car window for car pool pick up.


Thanks for your help with these.

Reach out if I can be of assistance at anytime! Jennifer

Got a 5 year old (or almost 5 year old) for me? :)


Kindergarten registration is in full swing ~ please start the registration process at kirkwoodschools.org/register.


It is recommended that a laptop computer, desktop computer, or tablet device be used to complete registration. Registering using a smartphone is not recommended.


Enrolling now allows time for schools to plan for maintaining desired class sizes.


We are also enrolling kids in grades one through five for 2021-2022. I am always happy to talk through any enrollment quesiotns you may have.
