We are looking forward to our newest students’ arrival and want to create as smooth a transition as possible. Dearborn Schools has developed and implemented 2 programs with this in mind.
Soft Start: All students K-5 begin with a half day on Tuesday, September 6th however Kindergarten will continue to attend school for half days on September 7-9. Incoming Kindergarten parents received a letter outlining this process in June. The schedule at Long will be as follows:
Tuesday, 9/6/15 – 8:35 to 11:45
Wednesday, 9/7/15 – 8:35 to 11:45
Thursday, 9/8/15 – 8:35 to 11:45
Friday, 9/9/15 – 8:35 to 12:15 (students will eat lunch at school)
Tuesday, 9/13/15 – Begin full days, 8:35 to 3:35
If you are in need of child care for these afternoons, please see the link below. This schedule is for Kindergarten Only.
Jump Start: This program will take place August 23, 24 and 25 from 9:00 to 12:00. During this time children will have an opportunity to meet teachers and staff, explore their classroom, and visit other areas of the school including the gym, art room and cafeteria. The focus will be on introducing them to school routines and helping them feel more comfortable so that the first few weeks of kindergarten are positive and successful.
If you did not receive a letter for this program but feel your child would benefit, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the rest of the break!
