Kindergarten Schedule 2011-2012

Letters were sent to parents today announcing that all kindergarten children will now attend school on an extended day, Early Bird/Late Bird schedule. The Early Bird Schedule will be: 8:20 am - 12:50 pm, and the Late Bird Schedule will be: 9:20 am – 1:50 pm. This schedule allows kindergarten students to have small group instruction daily, as well as allows kindergarten teachers to attend weekly staff meetings.

An extended day offers our students additional time to meet the rigorous state standards for kindergarten. Each Early Bird/Late Bird period (one hour daily) provides the structure for teachers to differentiate instruction, and allows for lower student to teacher class ratios. We now have space for all kindergarten teachers to have their own classroom.

Kindergarten classes will have recess and lunch during the school day separate from the 1st through 5th grade classes. The lunch period will be 45 minutes, and school lunch may be purchased at the school sites in the office or through the district website:
