The first day back to school for grades 1 through 5 is on Tuesday, September 5 at 9:00 am. Returning students will line up outside in their last year’s locations and be welcomed by their last year’s teacher. New students to Margaret Jenkins will come to the library to be placed with a temporary division. Dismissal on the first day is 11:30. The first few days of school will be spent with the last years division. During this time, teachers finalize class placements. In previous years we have been able to get students settled into their classrooms on Thursday morning, in time for our new Kindergarten students to join us.
Kindergarten starts school on a gradual entry. Thursday, September 7 is the first day. Students will either attend from 9:30 – 11:00 am or 1:00 – 2:30 pm. Details of which group your child has been placed will be emailed home in late August. Friday, September 8 is a half day from 8:40 – 11:50 and Monday, September 11 is the first full day.
Happy Summer and see you in September!
