Staggered Entry for Kindergarten Students ONLY 2021-2022
For the 2021-22 school year we plan on beginning the first two days of school for Kindergarten students with staggered entry. We have planned this for the following reasons:
- Allows students and teachers to have a smaller class size for the first week of school so that students and teachers can build strong connections right from the start
- Reduces initial time away from parents/daycare as they adjust to a school setting
- Allows us to better engage Kindergarten students in school routines and health protocols
On your first staggered entry day, teachers will greet students both at the busses (if applicable) and door A (main front door). All kindergarten students will be brought to door A for entry into the school. This is also where they will exit the building after their class for parent pick-up or to be guided onto the bus by their teacher.
Staggered entry schedule:
Group A: Monday / Wednesday students with last names starting with the letters A to M
Group B: Monday / Wednesday students with last names starting with the letters N to Z
Group C: Tuesday / Thursday students with last names starting with the letters A to M
Group D: Tuesday / Thursday students with last names starting with the letters N to Z
