How long is the Kindergarten day?
All grades - kindergarten through grade 5 – school doors open at 8:20 a.m. Parents may drop their kids off at the door at 8:20 a.m. All children must be in their classrooms by 8:30 a.m. when the late bell rings. If your child arrives after 8:30 a.m., he/she must check in with the callback/safe arrival volunteer in the front lobby. Kindergarten dismissal is structured in two segments. For the month of September, kindergarten ends at 12:30 p.m. daily. Beginning at the end of September/beginning of October, our two-long day, three-short day schedule begins.
