The York Region District School Board believes that learning begins at birth and is a shared endeavor among families, schools and community partners. This procedure below outlines the roles and responsibilities of the various partners in the supported entry for kindergarten process on the first day of school:
• Junior Kindergarten (JK) students attend the morning 8:55am of the first day of school and are dismissed at 11:45am. Reminder that there is no school bus at 11:45am and only parents or approved caregivers (identified on your child’s school registration form) will be allowed to pick-up your child on this day.
• Senior Kindergarten (SK) students attend for the whole first day (8:55am – 3:15pm)
• All JK and SK students attend and follow a regular schedule on the second day of school including before and/or after Daycare Program, if registered.
All students are to meet outside the Kindergarten Play area on the first day of school.
