EARLY START AND LATE START ASSIGNMENTS
There is an early start and late start schedule for Kindergarten students at North, so that the students are able to have some valuable small group instructional time with the teacher. Kindergarten students are assessed in literacy and math in August before school starts. Sign-up information for these assessments will be available after Kindergarten Roundup in May. The Kindergarten teachers use the results of the assessments to help them balance the students in classes. Families may request a particular start time, however the top priority is to create balanced classes in order to create a good learning environment for all students. Each year there are more requests for a particular time slot than there are slots available, so we apologize in advance if we are unable to accommodate a request. Start times are finalized just before school starts and families are notified by email with their child’s start time.
