    Hello Kindergarten Families!

    If this is your first round with a child in school - congratulations! You made it through the first round of what happens when inclement weather impacts WCPSS schools. I hope all goes well for you and your family today.

    Here is the revised plan for Kindergarten Staggered Entry. I have also included details about our Meet the Teacher event that was scheduled for tomorrow. Please read on further.

    • All Kindergarten students who were supposed to attend staggered entry today/Thursday (last names S-Z) will attend tomorrow/Friday, September 1st, for a regular staggered entry school day.  
    • Because we are moving today's staggered entry to tomorrow, we will NOT have a Meet the Teacher event tomorrow, September 1st. This ensures that our staggered entry students who were supposed to join us today, can experience a full staggered entry day like their classmates did earlier this week.
    • Kindergarten teachers will send an email before Tuesday to introduce themselves to their families and invite them to a condensed Meet the Teacher event on Tuesday, September 5th.
    • Reminder: There is no school on Monday, September 4th due to the Labor Day Holiday.
    • On Tuesday morning, September 5th, Kindergarten families will be allowed to walk their child to the classroom, drop off school supplies, and meet their child's teacher.  This event will be held during morning arrival from 8:45 - 9:15 am. After that time, we will ask families to depart so that the kindergarten instructional day can begin.
    • After Tuesday morning, families will need to check-in at the main office and follow our visitor procedures. If you need to conference further with your child's teacher, please send them an email to schedule a time for this to occur as unscheduled drop-ins are not permitted. We want to ensure that instruction can be our main focus once our day begins.
    • Be sure to always bring a valid ID (office staff will ask to see it) and you will need it for visitor/volunteer check in.
