Dear Kinder and TK Families:
Vintage Hills Elementary is excited to announce that starting with the 2017-2018 school year we are changing our Transitional Kindergarten/Kindergarten bell schedule slightly. Based upon data gathered regarding student learning needs at our site, we are fortunate to implement an instructional model which will provide a wonderful opportunity to further support the teaching and learning for our Kindergarten students.
The 2017-2018 school year starts on August 14, 2017. For the first three weeks of the new school year, the TK/K team enjoys getting to know your students by having them attend 8:15 - 12:15 until September 1, 2017. Starting September 5, 2017, Transitional Kindergarten/Kindergarten Early Bird students will attend school from 8:15 to 12:15; and Late Bird students will attend school from 9:00 -1:00 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday all students will attend from 9:15 to 12:15, to allow for teacher collaboration time in the morning. On minimum days the schedule will be 8:15 to 12:15 p.m.
Our Transitional Kindergarten/Kindergarten team will collaborate often to determine the best instructional practices to meet the needs of all learners throughout the year. Please look for more specific information to come home once the school year has started and please plan to attend our Kinder and TK Back to School in your child’s classroom.
We appreciate your support as we continue to provide the highest quality of education for our students. Although we plan to reach out to daycare providers that we know work with our site, please share this scheduling information with all people who may be impacted as well.
We are looking forward to a wonderful 2017-18 school year. If you have questions, please contact me at (925) 426-4200.
