Kindergarten Nitty-Gritty

    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to Kindergarten at Solana Vista School! We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning and fun! 

    Here is a list of procedures… the “Nitty-Gritty” of Kindergarten.

    Start Time…  Kindergarten students will start their day on the Kindergarten playground.  There will be supervision (only for kindergartners, 1st-3rd grade students will still start the day on the big playground) Supervision begins at 8:15. 

    Line Up… When the bell rings at 8:30 students in rooms 17-20 will line up at their classroom doors. Room16 will have a designated spot on the playground.  The second bell will ring at 8:35.  We ask that all parents exit the playground before that bell.  Parents will not be allowed in the classrooms.   Volunteer procedures will be addressed at Back-to-School Night.

    Snack and Lunch…  Please pack and clearly label a separate snack and lunch. No glass containers.  A hot lunch is available to purchase, but we ask the first few days of school to pack your child’s lunch.  Hot lunch procedures will be discussed at Back-to-School Night.

    Clothing/Backpacks…  Students should wear comfortable shoes and clothing that allows them to safely participate in school and sport activities.  Please label all sweaters, jackets and backpacks.  

    Pick-up… Kindergarten students will dismiss at 2:43  from their own classrooms on the kindergarten playground.  Drive thru students will be walked to their designated drive thru area.  PLEASE do not enter the kindergarten / quad areas until the dismissal bell rings at 2:43. Students who attend CDC or after school classes will be escorted.  After the first week of school if you would like your child to use the drive-thru pick-up please let your teacher know.


    It is going to be a wonderful year!
