Frequently asked questions

When does school start?

Students should be in class working by 8:10 a.m. If your student arrives before 8 a.m., he/she will wait for the class to start and will read quietly. Students start entering class and getting to work at 8 a.m. The tardy bell rings at 8:11 a.m.

When does school end?

Kindergarten gets dismissed first. Bus riders and daycare students wait in their classroom starting at 3:15. If you are picking your child up PLEASE be there no later than 3:20.

Will you have nap time?

No.

Will you have snack time?

Yes. Parents will be asked to send in healthy snacks like goldfish, crackers, vanilla wafers, graham crackers, etc. Students will not be permitted to share snacks with others. 

Will there be homework?

Yes. Your child will memorize sight words. He/she will read daily and fill in a reading log. There will also be math homework that reinforces each lesson. There will be a few at-home projects. There will be homework due on Fridays that help reinforce the letter of the week, as well as sentence writing.

Can I help?

Yes! In both kinder classes, we need parents to help with sight words. You will receive information at the beginning of the school year about how you can help. We couldn't do what we do without our awesome parents.
