Welcome to Whiteside Kindergarten!

We are really excited that the first day of school is quickly approaching. We can’t wait to see you and your children soon.

The first day of Kindergarten for Group A is Tuesday, September 6th from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Group B will join us from 1:00 - 1:45 p.m.  Please bring your child to the front of the school. There is a lot of construction happening and I am sure some of our new K’s will love seeing the diggers work around the school. Our temporary entrance is at the east end of the parking lot. We will have our staff and Kindergarten teachers there to welcome you.

Your children will come into the school for 45 minutes. During that time, we welcome our parents or caregivers to join us in our outdoor learning space for a conversation about our school, our PAC, and the routines for the beginning of the year.

Like all schools in Richmond, we follow a gradual entry schedule for our Kindergarten students during the first two weeks of school. We attached a copy of the schedule to this newspost.

All our school supplies are purchased through the district and are included with our school fees. Students are expected to bring a water bottle and snack for our partial days. Please send lunches for our longer or full days at school. Our teachers will connect with you about their specific routines soon.
