Section 8: Transition to Kindergarten

School closures, in many cases, did not provide an opportunity for students and parents of junior kindergarten students to visit the school as would typically have occurred as part of the transition process. All schools engaged in various virtual transition activities to welcome students and families to the school community.

All Kindergarten students will follow the same staggered entry schedule as grades 1-6 students. 

Students in Junior and Senior Kindergarten whose last names begin with:

  • A-G will begin school on September 11, 2020.
  • H-P will begin school on September 14, 2020.
  • Q-Z will begin school on September 15, 2020

All students will be attending school by September 15, 2020. 

Noting that Junior Kindergarten marks the beginning of the school experience for our youngest of learners and their parents school teams may offer orientation visits to Junior Kindergarten children and their parents between September 4 and 10, 2020.  These visits may be offered virtually or in person.  If offered in person, the school team will establish a date and time for a short visit to the school.  The visit will be individual in nature, one family at a time with an educator team.  All health protocols must be followed including, screening before entering the school, hand hygiene, and the provision of information for the purposes of contact tracing.

Schools will also have the flexibility to determine class compositions. Some schools may choose to organize kindergarten classrooms according to first and second-year cohorts or may choose to continue blending year-one and year-two students.
