KRA Appointment Sign Up

Parents/guardians of incoming kindergarten students will be receiving a letter in the mail mid-June which provides information about how their child did at Kindergarten Screening, who their child’s kindergarten teacher will be, and a link to sign up for a one-hour KRA appointment time slot on either Tuesday, August 29, Wednesday, August 30, or Thursday, August  31.  This individual appointment will be a time your child will get to know his/her new teacher, become familiar with the classroom, and complete a portion of the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment.   You will need the information that is on the letter to sign your child up. Please sign your child up by July 1st for this appointment with his/her assigned teacher.
