Welcome to Kindergarten! Our records show you have a child who will turn five years of age on or before December 1, 2020 and is eligible to attend Kindergarten at JHE for the 2020-21 school year. We look forward to working with you to help prepare your child for his or her school journey. Regardless of age, we recognize that all children do not learn in the same way or on the same day. With that in mind, each child who is preparing to enter Kindergarten must go through a screening process. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closing of schools, we are not able to invite you and your child to JHE for this screening. We will instead conduct this screening during the first week of your child's Kindergarten experience. Our screening process provides us with insight into your child's strengths as well as those areas he or she may need support in. Early awareness helps us to develop the best educational plan to support your child's transition into Kindergarten. Our screening team consists of teachers, school nurses, speech pathologists, and occupational/physical therapists. We are currently working on a virtual "Open House" to replace our "Welcome to Kindergarten Breakfast and Bus ride." We will provide the link to all families as soon as it is completed.
To begin the pre-registration process, all paperwork must be completed and uploaded online by June 19, 2020. We look forward to being able to meet you and your child in person as they join our JHE family! If you have any questions, please call Barb Semo at 518-882-1033 ext. 4240.
