Please keep in mind that we are working hard to finalize classes and that this process may take some time. Therefore, it is uncertain when students will find out who their teacher will be and move into their final classes. We know that students are anxious and excited to find out who their teacher will be and that this process can be difficult. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this process, as it is of the upmost importance to make sure that class placements are done to the best of our capabilities.
Gradual Entry for Kindergarten
Every year we have a gradual entry for Kindergarten students. This involves a phasing in of small groups and shortened attendance times, allowing children to adjust to a new school environment and families to develop relationships with teachers. If your child is in kindergarten please follow the Gradual Entry Schedule that you received at the end of last school year. If you need further information about the Gradual Entry Schedule please contact the office.
