Pre-kindergartners of Potomac, your big-kid school days are near!
The 2013-2014 school year starts on Monday, Aug. 26, 2013, and kindergarten orientation sessions take place in Montgomery County between April 3 and May 24.
Children who will be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2013, may enter kindergarten in the fall, and they and their families are invited to attend an orientation to meet the principal, teachers and other staff members at their school.
At the orientations, parents will have the opportunity to ask questions about the school’s procedures and programs, enroll students for the next school year and complete important forms. The sessions also will help students become acquainted with the school environment, a Montgomery County Public Schools statement explained.
Parents are asked to call their home school to make an appointment to register for that school’s specific orientation date(s).
Parents uncertain about which elementary school serves their area should contact the school boundaries office at 240-314-4710, or use the School Assignment Locator on the MCPS website.
Just missed the cut-off date? An Early Entrance to Kindergarten application is available for parents with children who will turn 5 years old between Sept. 2, and Oct. 15, 2013. Parents who seek early entrance consideration for their children should inquire at their home school, the statement added.
