General Information for Kindergarten
Schedule: AM Kindergarten will start at 9:10 AM and dismiss at 11:40 AM. PM Kindergarten will start at 1:10 PM and dismiss at 3:40 PM. Please do not send your child to school before 8:50 AM and 12:55 PM.
Take Home Folder: Folders will go home every day. Please place any important notes or papers in this folder. All classroom work will be sent home in this folder.
Snack: Please send your child with one small snack and one drink each day. In order to keep all children safe, please pack a peanut free snack.
Absences: We are encouraging all absences to be reported online. Please send an email to Mrs. McCusker and firstname.lastname@example.org noting child’s name, parent’s name, date(s) of absence, and reason for absence.
Changes in Dismissal: If travel arrangements change on a certain day, please send an email or a note in your child's folder. Should there be a change during the school day, please call the office and they will alert us of the change. If your child will be picked up by another parent, we need a note (hand written or email) from both parties. We cannot allow any changes in your child's regular routine without permission.
Birthday Celebrations: In lieu of edible birthday treats, we will celebrate by reading the birthday child’s favorite book. This book can be: a favorite book from home or a book the child chooses from the classroom library. Books that are 5-10 minutes long are just right for our birthday celebrations. We will sing ‘Happy Birthday’ also! Please note that we are unable to distribute birthday invitations at school. Please use our Kindergarten Directory as well as the PTO Directory to obtain contact information for party planning.
