Rising Kindergarten Update 02/28/2021

February 28, 2021


Rising Kindergarten Families,


We can't wait to have you join the Salem Elementary family in 2021! Welcoming new kindergarteners and their families is one of the highlights of our year. Even if things may look a little different, we maintain that same feeling of excitement! Normally, we would be hosting in-person tours and our first kindergarten information sessions around this time of year. This year, the timing and focus of our events will look at little different because we are still waiting on crucial information for our planning process. Most notably, there will be a delay in track assignments for next year because we do not know how Virtual Academy will be structured next year, and we do not know how many students will be called back to Olive Chapel Elementary, a capped school for which we are an overflow school. Because we are not able to host in-person school tours this year, please check out our virtual tour by clicking here.


Today we are excited to share our kindergarten team's website for rising kindergarten students and their families. We are also sharing a helpful,  new video from our kindergarten team that introduces our kindergarten teachers and shares some tips on how to ensure that your child is ready for a successful start to kindergarten.

Please continue to check the bottom of our website under Salamander News for updates. We do plan to share more videos and host a live question and answer session once more information about next year has been shared with schools. Please call the school with any questions you may have at (919) 363-2865.
