Kindergarten

We are using a staggered entry for Kindergarten classes. Kindergarten families who have already registered have been sent specific information about the start and end times for the first week of school. If you are a new parent that has not registered yet we will let you know at registration which group your child will be in (AM or PM class).  Kindergarten orientation will be on Friday, September 9, 2022. There will be more information forthcoming with details about orientation.

​​​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2022-23 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2022-23 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.

Learn more about transportation on the CBE website.

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
