Kindergarten students are placed into AM and PM classes based on the preference indicated by parents when registering as much as possible. When this isn't possible due to the classes being at capacity, we use the following criteria:
A Kindergarten Handbook is emailed to new Kindergarten parents in a Kindergarten Information Message once students are registered.
Kindergarten Homeroom teachers will not assigned to particular students until September 9 to ensure all classes are balanced for gender, identified learning needs and visible aptitudes. Once the homeroom teacher is assigned, this teacher will serve as the primary contact for communication and assessment.
Regular Kindergarten programming occurs during the regular instructional hours of school Mondays – Thursdays from 9:05 AM – 11:57 AM or 12:43 PM – 3:35 PM. On Fridays, for early dismissal days, the AM or PM Kindergarten class will only come to school on select assigned days between 9:05 - 1:05 (regardless of AM or PM class placement).
Please refer to the Northern Lights School Kindergarten 22-23 calendar for specific attendance days.
