Kinder Info

Welcome to Vine Hill Elementary!  We are thrilledVH Logo your child is beginning their education here with us, and we know they will have an amazing year.  Kindergarten is a time of academic and social growth, where students learn new skills and concepts in a friendly environment.  

Transitional Kindergarten will be in the morning for 2020.2021.  Transitional Kindergarteners (Bear Cubs) are those students whose 5th birthday falls between September 1st and December 2nd.  Early Cubs will come to school from 8:10-11:30am, and Late Cubs will come from 9:10am-12:30pm. You will be notified by email on August 12th regarding your child’s placement in Early Cubs or Late Cubs.

Kindergarten is nowfull day at Vine Hill!  Ed Code 48000 states that a child who will reach age 5 on or before September 1st will be eligible for enrollment in Kindergarten (Board Policy AR5111). Kindergarteners will be at school from 8:10am-2:10pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and 8:10am-12:20pm on Wednesdays.

We always strive for balanced classes.  We use information from the Parent Information forms, along with information from your child’s preschool, and ratio of boys and girls, to determine class placement.  If there are unique circumstances that you would like us to consider in regards to placement, please write a letter explaining the situation and attach it to the Parent Information form.  

Please note, indicating a preference does not guarantee placement. Again, we work to ensure balanced classes for the success of all students.

Please fill out all of the forms in this packet and return them to the school office as soon as possible. 

Immunization dates, birth certificate and address verification must be supplied in order for your child to be enrolled.  Please make sure this information is correct to avoid unnecessary delays in registering your child.

You will be notified of your child’s class placement by email on August 19th.

On our website, you will find useful information about Kindergarten Readiness and ideas for helping your child get ready for the school experience.  

We will be having a Kindergarten/TK Parent informational meeting on Thursday, March 5th at 6pm.

We look forward to working with you, and are pleased you have chosen Vine Hill School!

 

Sincerely,

Tracey Neilsen
