Kindergarten Staggered Entry
Kindergarten is the beginning of children's educational journey and we want to ensure that every child has a positive and successful “first day” experience. One of the ways we do this is by having a staggered entry at the start of the school year for Kindergarten children. On Kindergarten staggered entry days half the children attend and the other half stays home.
Kindergarten parents, please check the dates below for child's staggered entry date and time.
Wednesday September 1st 12:35 PM – 3:23 PM All students with surnames beginning A through H.
Thursday September 2nd 12:35 PM – 3:23 PM All students with surnames beginning I through Z
Friday September 3rd 8:35 AM – 11:30 AM All Kindergarten students attend.
Classroom assignments for the 2021-2022 school year will be available in MyCBE/PowerSchool account after 1:00 pm on August 31, 2021.
