A message to parents/guardians of the Class of 2033:

We are excited to welcome your child to Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year.  Typically, in the beginning of June, we hold a Kindergarten Screening event where incoming students are able to participate in a screening, tour the building and take a bus ride.  Due to the health crisis and necessary school closure, our event will look a bit different this year.  

Below you will find a link to an online parent questionnaire that will help us learn more about your incoming kindergartener.  This information would usually have been collected from you on the day your child's screening.  The input that we gather from you is valuable to us, particularly with regard to placing your child in the right environment and help your child transition to a full day of school.  You can complete the questionnaire via this link: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=2jBOXgFFtk-7qhRfh908zRMKoBEAfxpNueQvkHngTXRURVc4QjEyOE5USU9WS1hLSlQwNk1SSVhPRC4u

You may also be wondering about the building tour and bus ride.  We are hopeful that this summer (likely late summer) we will be able to provide building tours and bus rides for incoming kindergarten students.  Of course, this depends on the guidance we will receive from state and local officials regarding the ongoing COVID-19 closures and appropriate social distancing measures.  If buildings are still closed at that time, we will provide virtual tours and bus rides so that your child may become familiar with their new setting.  As soon as we know more, we will update families.

In the meantime, please review this presentation that was done at our Kindergarten Orientations this winter. We updated some of the slides and encourage you to share the video in the middle of the presentation with your child.  Look for a hello from all our Kindergarten teachers and principals at the end!
