Kindergarten Orientation: In lieu of an in-person kindergarten orientation, families will receive all pertinent information digitally prior to the beginning of the school year. Kindergarten teachers will prepare a presentation that will be shared with families that covers a variety of topics (for example, how to access learning digitally/online resources, “About the Teacher” video, FAQs about kindergarten). Families will receive digital orientation information directly from their child’s classroom teacher. Students will also be able to “Meet their Teacher” digitally on Thursday, September 10, through our virtual Open House.
First Day: Kindergarten students will follow the district calendar, with a start day of September 14 or September 15. All students, including kindergarten, will return using a phased-in, staggered schedule (Hybrid Model – Approximately 50% of students each day, alternating days). During the two week (September 14 – September 25) hybrid model, kindergarten teachers will orient students to the classroom routines, sanitation procedures and overall school operations.
Students will be assigned into one of two groups – Green or White cohort:
- Green: Monday, Wednesday, every other Friday (Last names A–K)
- White: Tuesday, Thursday, every other Friday (Last names L–Z)
- September 28: All students report
Kindergarten Registration: If you have a child who will be 5 years-old by September 30, 2020, you may register for kindergarten through the district website.
