[toggle_inside title=”Kindergarten Orientation Parent Letter”]

July 2015

Dear Parents,

We are excited about receiving your child into our school family!  We look forward to getting to know you and your child.

We appreciate the interest and input from community and parents and the commitment that the Board of Education has made to Early Childhood.  In effort to assure a quality beginning for each child, Johnston County Schools has scheduled a staggered entry for the 2015-2016 school year for our kindergarten children.  The State Department of Public Instruction has recognized the importance of quality school entry by allowing up to ten days of staggered entry.  Our staggered entry will be a nine-day process, which includes:

  • First through Seventh day – August 24 through September 1, 2015 – Scheduled individual student screening and parent/teacher/student orientation and conferences.
    • Check your email/mail for your personal letter that includes your child’s individual orientation date/time.
  • Eighth day – September 2, 2015 – Half of the class is scheduled for class orientation.
  • Ninth day – September 3, 2015 – The other half of the class is scheduled for class orientation.
  • Tenth day – September 4, 2015 – All students will attend together for the first time.

The 2015-2016 school year will begin for each parent and child with an individual student screening and parent/teacher/student orientation during the first seven regular school days of the 2015-2016 school year.  Your child’s first experience at school will be at this individual orientation.  It will be an opportunity that will enable us to get acquainted with each other and share information together about expectations, curriculum scheduling, and other important issues.  It will also provide an opportunity for personal interaction with your child.  Teachers are assigned after the individual student screenings are complete.  We will notify you concerning when your conferences will be scheduled with your child’s assigned teacher.

The next time your child will come to school will be designated as either the eighth or ninth school day.  The eighth and ninth days of school will allow us to provide full-day orientation with half of the students in the class each day within a small class situation.  Half of the students in the class will attend on the eighth day. Then these students will stay home on the ninth day, and the other half will come to school.  We will notify you concerning this as well.

On the tenth day of school, September 4, 2015 all kindergarten students will attend class together for the first time.

We are excited about providing a personal opportunity to meet with each parent and child.  We will contact you as soon as students are placed in classes.  We need and want your support.  Let’s work together to assure only the best for each child who comes to school in Johnston County.
