Kindergarten Gradual Entry
Your kindergarten student will attend one of three Gradual Entry Assessment days during the week of September 7th-9th. Transportation will need to be provided by parents on your scheduled date. Kindergarten teachers will be escorting your student to our kindergarten classrooms since we cannot have parents enter the building due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please be ready to pick your child up at the front entrance 5 minutes before their session ends. You will be escorted to the back of our school where you will be able to meet our kindergarten teachers and view the classrooms from outside. You will be notified of your child's teacher via phone call on Friday, September 10th. The first official full day of kindergarten will be Monday, September 13th.
Student's gradual entry day is assigned based on the first letter of their last name.
Students whose last name begins with:
A-G will attend on Tuesday, September 7th from 9:00am - 2:00pm
H-R will attend on Wednesday, September 8th from 9:00am - 2:00pm
S-Z will attend on Thursday, September 9th form 9:00am - 2:00pm
Students will be provided lunch at school during their grandual entry session. If you prefer to pack a lunch you may do so. Masks will be required to be worn by students with the exception of when eating and drinking.
