First Day of Classes
Our first day of classes is Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020. Our school office opens Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020.
We will be having a staggered entry format on the first two days of school: Tuesday, Sept. 1 and Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2020. During staggered entry, each kindergarten class is divided in half. One half of the class attends on the Tuesday and one half attends on the Wednesday during the normal Kindergarten hours. This enables the teacher to introduce students to class routines in a smaller group setting and also allows more opportunity to meet parents and get to know the students. Please contact the school if you are unsure of your child's start date.
On Thursday, Sept. 3, all Kindergarten students will begin regular classes. The morning class runs from 8:40 AM to 11:30 PM. Afternoon class runs from 12:40 PM to 3:30 PM.
Kindergarten bell times are:
- 8:40 AM – 11:30 PM (morning class)
- 12:40 PM – 3:30 PM (afternoon class)
Afternoon Kindergarten class will attend in the morning on alternate Fridays. Sept. 4, 2020 is the first day of our alternating Friday schedule. Only the morning class will attend on Friday, Sept. 4, 2020.
