Kindergarten Information for Next Year


You will soon be receiving an important envelope in the mail from us. The envelope will include information on how to register for busing next year, your staggered entry time, your AM or PM designation and a letter with further information about kindergarten for next year. The busing information will have your child's CBE number which you will need to register for busing. To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must pre-register by June 5. Any registrations received after that date will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving. The more registrations we receive by the deadline, the more efficient route planning will be for September. If you have not received the envelope by Thursday, June 1, 2017, please call the school office at 403-777-6890 to let us know.
