Kindergarten Parent Orientation




Morrisville Year-Round Elementary is excited to welcome a new group of rising Kindergarten students and families for the start of the 2024-2025 school year.  


Parent Orientation: On June 4, the Morrisville Kindergarten team led a parent information session providing families with detailed information to help students begin school in July.  These details included information about a typical school day, school communications, bus transportation, carpool, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), attendance, immunizations and health guidelines, and an overview of staggered entry.

Meet the Teacher: The 2024-2025 school year begins with Meet the Teacher events for families and students.  Dates and times for each Track are as follows:

  • Track 1 Meet the Teacher (Grades K-5):  July 3, 9:30 AM – 10:15 AM
  • Track 2 Meet the Teacher (Grades K-5): July 3, 1:00 PM – 1:45 PM
  • Track 3 Meet the Teacher (Grades K-5): July 3, 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM
  • Track 4 Meet the Teacher (Grades K-5): July 25, 4:30 PM – 5:15 PM


Staggered Entry:  Staggered entry for Kindergarten students on Tracks 1, 2, and 3 occurs between July 8 – 10.  Staggered entry for Kindergarten Track 4 occurs between July 29 – 31.  The specific staggered entry date assigned to your child was communicated in the track assignment letter sent home at the beginning of May.


What is staggered entry?  For Kindergarten students staggered entry is one special shortened day of school that students attend from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM on their very first day.  The purpose of this unique day is to engage students in small group activities to get to know their teacher and the school.  Parents will transport students to and from school on their child’s staggered entry day.  Parents will be able to walk their child into the classroom on staggered entry.  After staggered entry students will begin walking into the school building and to the classroom on their own.


School Supplies: Grade level supply lists for next school year are now posted online. Visit
