For children in grades 5,6, and 7, they will come to school from 11am-12noon on both days.

 InformationKindergarten Gradual Entry

Thank you for your patience and understanding. This is a most unusual transition for our youngest learners. The district has created guidelines to ensure a gradual, safe entry for our Kindergarten children. Our teachers are creating a schedule for each child, and we will share this with you via email the week of August 31st. In the meantime, please plan for your child to attend for one hour their first day on either September 10th or the 11th, and then slowly and gradually build to their first full day on September 29th.  We are keeping classes small until children are placed in their learning cohorts on September 29th. More information will be sent to you as soon as possible.

 InformationStudent Starting Kindergarten in September

The first steps into Kindergarten represent an important milestone in a student’s school journey.  We look forward to welcoming your child into our school and sharing in this milestone with you.  

 As we look ahead to the 2020-2021 school year, responding to COVID-19 will be central to the planning for school start-up in September.  While schools typically share schedules for gradual entry into Kindergarten in June, the rapidly changing landscape in relation to COVID precludes us from providing  families with schedules at this time.  Once we have received direction from Ministry regarding September, schools will be sharing gradual entry plans with families.  We anticipate that this will occur in late August through school websites.  

 We appreciate your patience and look forward to celebrating your child’s entry into kindergarten in the fall.
