2021/2022 Kindergarten Registration

Kinder Info

Dear Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Families,

Welcome to Vine Hill Elementary!  

We are thrilledTN Bitmoji 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 2021.2022.  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 5th regarding your child’s placement in Early Cubs or Late Cubs.

Kindergarten  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 8:20am-2:20pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursday and Fridays and 8:20am-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 the 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.  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 2nd.

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 Zoom Kindergarten/TK Parent informational meeting on Wednesday, March 17th at 6pm.  The link to the meeting will be on the Vine Hill website home page.

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

Sincerely,

Tracey Neilsen

Early Transitional Kindergarten (ETK) Information

We have received inquiries over the summer about whether SVUSD will be offering Early Transitional Kindergarten (ETK) in the upcoming school year.

We will not be implementing that program in the 2021-22 school year. The state legislature approved a progressive process with full implementation in the 2024-25 school year which the District will be following.

The District will be discussing and planning for this program in the upcoming year in preparation for initial implementation of the ETK program in 2022-23.
