Kinder/TK Welcome Message

Greetings Jefferson Families! 

We know that many of you are excited to start either Kindergarten or TK in August and we are so excited to have you join us! Here is some follow up information from the new family orientation event that we held a few weeks ago. 

  • Missed the orientation? No problem, you can find a link to the slide deck that we used for that presentation here
  • Important dates. As we approach August, there are some important dates that you should add to your calendar–
    • Kindergarten students will be invited to complete a brief pre-assessment on either August 2, 3, or 4. The pre-assessment is brief (15 minutes) and offers our teachers an opportunity to get to know your students a bit better. 
    • Students in Kindergarten and TK are invited to a Sneak Peek to meet their teachers and see their classrooms on August 12. 
    • The first day of school for all students will be August 15. 
    • Back to School Night is scheduled for August 25.
  • School start and end times at Jefferson can be complicated! We’ll share more information about the divided opening program for Kindergarten students during the Back to School Night event. But here are the school start and end times for the first three weeks of school: 
    • TK students 8:30 am - 1:30 pm 
    • Kindergarten students 8:30 - 12:00 
  • Childcare options are important to our families, so we want to make certain that you see the Burbank USD page for our onsite childcare providers. You can find the website here

That’s all for now. Please enjoy a safe and relaxing summer. As we get closer to August we’ll send more information about how to sign Kinder students up for their pre-assessment and the exact times for our TK & K Sneak Peek.
