First Two Days of Kindergarten – Modified Schedule

Kindergarten Parent Information for the First Two Days

(On August 8th, a letter will be mailed to kindergarten parents with this information plus additional information.)

The first day for all children is Wednesday, August 15th.  To assist with the transition into kindergarten, the first two days of school (Wednesday, August 15th and Thursday, August 16th) have been shortened.  Hours for the first two days of kindergarten will be 9:45 AM to 1:45 PM. All parents and students will meet outside the kindergarten doors (NW side of building) and teachers will take students inside after good-byes are said! Beginning Friday, August 17th and thereafter, our regular school hours for all students is 8:50 AM to 3:40 PM.

Students in first through fifth grades will start school at the regular time and dismiss at the regular time during these two Kindergarten transition days.  During the two transition days (August 15th and 16th), first through fifth grade bus students will be picked up and delivered to school before your son/daughter arrives and will be taken home after your son/daughter leaves for the day. First through fifth grade students not riding the bus will of course arrive before and leave after your son/daughter.  If your child rides the bus on these transition days, he/she can expect to be picked up between 8:50 and 9:35 AM and will arrive home between 1:50 and 2:35 PM

You will receive transportation information from First Student Transportation prior to the beginning of school. In addition, routes for regular days of school will be posted on the front doors by August 13th. If you have further questions about transportation, please call First Student at 987-5184.
