Kindergarten Staggered Start Dates

We are excited, once again, to incorporate a staggered start for our Kindergarten students for the 2017-2018 school year. This staggering allows students to smoothly transition into the school as they get an introduction to procedures and routines with only half of their classmates! As a reminder, K students will attend on Thursday OR Friday and all students will attend daily beginning Monday, August 8. Please see below for more details.

  • Thursday, August 3: K students with LAST NAME beginning with A-H attend
