Letter to Kindergarten Families

Welcome to Kindergarten
August 2019

We would like to welcome you to Kindergarten!  On the first day of school - Wednesday, August 14th, 2019 - Kindergarten students will be on a different schedule than the rest of our Huntertown studentsThe Kindergarten students and parents will come to school at 9:15 a.m.  Please park in the circle drive or in the back parking lot behind the fire station.  All of the doors will be locked, so you will need to walk around to the front of the school and enter through door #1.

Parents and their Kindergarten student(s) should get a visitor’s sticker at Door #1, then proceed to your child’s Kindergarten classroom.  

Parents will stay until 10:20; students will stay for the rest of the school day.  At 2:30, students will either ride the bus home, get picked up at the circle drive as a car rider, or walk home.  

You will have the opportunity on this day to experience literacy and learning centers, as well as to explore the room and meet your child’s teacher.  This day is very important to alleviate any fears you and your child may have regarding Kindergarten. 

The following day - Thursday, August 15th, 2019 - will be your child’s first day on their normal schedule: 7:45 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to help ensure that your child’s first experience with their new school is a good one.  We appreciate your role in making Huntertown the great place that it is.
