Release Date: May 16th, 2012
At the May 14th meeting, the Board approved expanding our Full-Day Kindergarten to all interested parents. The Full-Day program will be offered in all 12 elementary schools. As of this hour, 92.6% of our parents have selected the Full-Day Kindergarten program.We will continue to offer Half-Day Kindergarten at some elementary sites. A bus shuttle service will transport children to centralized sites if their neighborhood elementary does not have sufficient enrollment or is not selected as one of the Half-Day sites.Based on current numbers, we would plan to offer our Half-Day Kindergarten program at three “centralized” school sites: Harrison Parkway, Lantern Road and Thorpe Creek. New Britton will offer its own Half-Day program because its numbers can support it.
We will continue to enroll new students, and some parents will change their programming decisions for their children already enrolled. If Half-Day numbers drop and a third centralized site is not needed, just Lantern Road and Thorpe Creek would house the “centralized” Half-Day program. New Britton will continue to offer its own Half- Day program because its numbers can support it.
If your child is enrolled in the Half-Day program and you would like to move over to the Full-Day program at your home school, please complete the online registration at www.surveymonkey.com/s/J63QSJX.
If your child is currently registered for the Full-Day program and you would like to move to the Half-Day program, please email Danielle Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. Please identify the school, child’s name and the request to move to the half-day program in your email.
Any movement between programs must be completed by Wednesday, May 23, 2012. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact Danielle Thompson.
