“Kindergarten Orientation Days” September 1, 2, & 6

Kindergarten Orientation Days: Your child will be invited to one of the three orientation days. They will spend this day doing fun activities with all Kindergarten teachers in a small group setting.

Students’ assigned day for Kindergarten Orientation is determined by the first letter of their last name:

  • Student Last Name A – G: Thursday, September 1 (8:05am – 2:15pm)

  • Student Last Name H – P: Friday, September 2 (8:05am – 2:15pm)

  • Student Last Name Q – Z: Tuesday, September 6 (8:05am – 2:15pm)

Students will enter via the front entrance of the school. We will have plenty of staff on hand to guide them to the kindergarten classrooms.

  • 8:05 - Meet at the front entrance of the building. A staff member will greet you and walk your kindergartener to their classroom.

  • 8:15 - Parents meet at the front steps of the school for a Welcome and Q & A with staff.

"Ramp-Up Days" September 7-9

  • Tuesday, September 7 & Wednesday, September 8 - all children attend the full school day (7:55am - 2:15pm). During these two days, students will spend time in each kindergarten classroom with a variety of students and staff.

  • Friday, September 9 - No school for kindergarten students - teachers thoughtfully create balanced classes and prepare classrooms. Kindergarten class lists will be emailed by noon.
