Dear Keeler Kindergarten Families,
We look forward to welcoming everyone back for the 2020-2021 school year. To assist in adjusting to new rules, practices and procedures our school will welcome students back on a staggered schedule (Redstone community) and late entry/early dismissal (Forest Heights community).
All students grade 1-5 and our Enhanced Educational Support Class including Redstone community will start school on September 1st at regular school hours of 8:00am and dismissal at 2:30pm.
We are sharing the schedule with you now to help support your planning as the start of school approaches. More details will be provided to you around our specific Covid-19 measures and re-entry plans (including first day procedures) on August 28. In addition, the Kindergarten team will be individually calling families on August 27th and August 28th. We continue to wait for system updates to share with you but have only received confirmation on re-entry organization that we would like to share now. As we make plans for re-entry, we want to ensure we get this right and ensure our youngest learners in the building have a positive first experience. Just a reminder that parents and/or guardians will NOT be permitted into our building due to the Covid-19 visitor protocols.
Opening Staggered Days & Late Entry/Early Dismissal for Kindergarten students ONLY
Redstone Kindergarten Students
Attached is the Redstone community Kindergarten calendar which has our students starting on Tuesday September 2nd at regular hours with alternating full days. We will have a designated zone to ensure safe entry and opportunity for our Kindergarten students to learn the new protocols and processes in place in a stress-free environment. The schedule for Redstone kindergarten students:
Tuesday September 1st: NO SCHOOL for REDSTONE community kindergarten students (As per the calendar)
Wednesday September 2nd: 8:00am Start & 2:30pm Dismissal (Regular School Hours)
Thursday September 3rd: NO SCHOOL for REDSTONE community kindergarten students (As per the calendar)

Forest Heights Kindergarten Students
All our Forest Heights community Kindergarten students will have a late entry and early dismissal for the first week of school (September 1st-4th). This will allow the rest of our students grade 1-5 to enter the building and decrease the crowds outside as our Kindergarten students can learn the new protocols and processes in place in a stress-free environment. The schedule for Forest Heights community kindergarten students.
Tuesday September 1st: 8:30am Start & 2:00pm Dismissal
