Kindergarten Staggered Entry
June 25, 2021
Dear Kindergarten Families,
A warm welcome to you and your child from the kindergarten teachers and administrative team at Tuscany School! We would like to inform you of the dates and times for your child’s first two days of kindergarten in September 2021.
We will be utilizing a staggered entry format on the first two days of school:
Wednesday, September 1 and Thursday, September 2
During staggered entry, only half of the students attend, which enables the teachers to introduce students to class routines in smaller groups and allows more opportunity for the teachers to get know the students.
Depending upon your child’s last name, your child will attend on either the Tuesday OR Wednesday, from either 8:30am-11:16am or 12:09pm to 2:55pm; depending upon whether they are registered for the morning or afternoon class.
- Morning students with last names beginning with the letters A - K attend on Wednesday, September 1
- Morning students with last names beginning with the letters L - Z attend on Thursday, September 2
- Afternoon students with last names beginning with the letters A - K attend on Wednesday, September 1
- Afternoon students with last names beginning with the letters L - Z attend on Thursday, September 2
Friday – Early Dismissal Attendance
AM and PM Kindergarten students will alternate attending school on Friday early dismissal days from 8:30am to 12:40pm. The AM Kindergarten class will be attending on our first Friday early dismissal, Friday, September 3.
The Tuscany School Calendar for 2021-2022 which indicates the alternating Fridays early dismissal schedule is posted on our school website calendar page.
On Tuesday, September 7, all kindergarten students will begin regular attendance:
AM Kindergarten classes are from Mon-Thurs from 8:30am to 11:16am.
PM Kindergarten classes are from Mon-Thurs from 12:09pm to 2:55pm.
We look forward to meeting you and your child in September! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school at 403-777-8060.
