Kindergarten

  • Full-Day kindergarten is available at each elementary school and provides students with greater learning opportunities.  Full-day kindergarten students attend from 8:40am - 3:25pm. Everyone who requests full-day kindergarten will be accommodated.

    • 2021-2022 Tuition: The Board of Education has eliminated tuition for full-day kindergarten; families of kindergarten students will be assessed the standard material and supply fee that applies to all students in grades K-8. 

    Half-day kindergarten is available only for the morning session. Students who attend half-day leave school at the lunch break. There is no bus transportation available after morning kindergarten.

    Parents will be asked to indicate their session preference (full-day or half-day morning) on the online enrollment application.
