Kindergarten

We are excited to meet the newest members of our Northgate family. Our goal is to make the transition to kindergarten as easy as possible for you and your child. Some of you may have many questions and might be a bit anxious about this new journey; especially as we are opening this school year in an online learning model.

In order to make the transition to Kindergarten as smooth as possible, we will be holding orientation sessions on Monday, August 31. You will receive a letter that includes your child's building assignment as well as the time of your orientation session. If you have not received a letter by Monday August, 17 please contact Dr. Peacock directly. 

Our orientation sessions will be held throughout the day to maintain small groups and proper social distancing. During this session you and your child will be able to meet our teachers and preview online lessons. You will also receive a daily schedule, your child’s books, and an iPad if you need one. Additionally, we will conduct the screening process that is typically held at the beginning of each school year.

If you have not registered your student for Kindergarten, please complete this registration survey, so we can reach out to you to schedule a registration appointment. 

The official first full day of Kindergarten is Tuesday, September 1. We encourage all of our families to visit our Response to Coronavirus page for the most up-to-date information on our reopening plans.
