2020-2021 Kindergarten


The 2020-2021 school year will look a little different from most school years across all grades, including for our kindergarten students and parents.

Often times on the first day, parents walk their children into the school building for kindergarten. With our safety protocols in place this year due to COVID-19, we will not be able to allow parents to do this. We know this will be a difficult time for parents; decades of experience with first days of kindergarten have shown us how important this day is. We are also saddened by this restriction, but it is in place to keep our kids, staff and families all as safe as possible.

We will be hosting Zoom conferencing calls with parents and kindergartners during the first week of school. Each school principal will be reaching out to parents to schedule these, so please be sure your contact information is up to date in the ParentVue app.

This year, kindergarten students will not be intermixed on the first two days of school as planned. We normally do this to see how the children interact with one another and to let each of the kindergarten teachers and specialists get to meet each student and begin forming a relationship. Instead, this year students will be grouped into a classroom of students for the first two days, Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 12-13.

While this isn't the preferred method, our teachers and specialists will do their best and take time to meet each student to see if rearranging of students for the rest of the school year would be a better fit. To do this, the students will engage in a number of fun activities, lessons and basic assessments for the staff to get to know them better and for children to meet other students.

There will be no school for kindergarten on Friday, Aug. 14, as teachers meet to discuss placement of students. There will likely be students who could have new classrooms for the start of the first full week on Monday, Aug. 17.

On the evening of Friday, Aug. 14, each kindergarten teacher will host another Zoom call with the parents of the students in their class. Invitations will be sent for this event on Friday afternoon via email. Schools will be in communication with parents for complete details. At this event, parents will learn their student's teacher and classmates for the duration of the school year.
