First Day Info


The following is an excerpt from our First Friday Flash of the year.

Kindergarten: Due to the slow mail service, some of the JK parents have not received their child’s classroom assignment.  If you have not been able to contact the school, we will have staff outside on Tuesday with a master list to give you that informationAll kindergarten students are to be dropped off at the kindergarten playground (next to Durant Ave).  Teachers and ECE’s will be there to greet you and your child and take attendance.  This will be the procedure for every day of the year (except extreme weather days).  The teachers will be escorting the students inside just after the rest of the students enter.  Please say goodbye at the playground as we are asking parents not to come into the school

First Day Drop Off:  On Tuesday morning, supervision will begin at 8:35 am.  Teachers will be situated along field with signs indicating their room number and their name.  Students should look for their teacher and sign in with them.  Teachers will wait with their classes and enter the building at 9:00 am or sooner if all students have arrived.  Parents, please say goodbye to your child at the door, as we are asking you not to enter the school.

First Day Requirements:  The school provides all school supplies for your child, so there is no need to send pencils, paper etc. Please send your child with a lunch and two snacks, indoor shoes, and for kindergarten students, a change of clothes including underwear and socks. Please remember also, hats and sunscreen as we will be going outside for recesses and kindergarten students have 80 minutes of scheduled outdoor learning every day.
