Kindergarten 2020-21

Welcome to Creekside! 
 
While this year will certainly look different than we could have imagined, we are excited that your family will be part of (or continue being part of) our learning community. We will provide a laptop for your child to use at home and we will share information in the coming weeks about our plans to get those to each family. For now, please note the following:
 
  • We will host virtual parent orientation sessions on Tuesday, August 4 at 10 AM, 2 PM, and 6:30 PM. These sessions will all be the same, so you do not need to plan on attending more than one.
Join Zoom Meeting https://dpsnc.zoom.us/j/91856143475?pwd=SER0Q3NIWU8xNWd5d2tiUE1EQktYQT09 Meeting ID: 918 5614 3475 Passcode: 888022  
  • Kindergarten students will have a staggered entry to school. As such, their first week will look different than that of students in grades 1-5. Our schedule is listed.
Monday or Tuesday, August 17 or 18 (no formal school)
Your child will take a brief, one-on-one assessment with one of our kindergarten teachers. There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this; it will be an informal conversation with your child. Please sign up for a time slot here. Please sign-up before Thursday, August 13th to ensure all students are scheduled for this assessment. 
 
Wednesday, August 19 (no formal school)
We will contact you between noon and 2 PM to share your child's teacher's name and a zoom link for an afternoon virtual meet-the-teacher open house event. Stay tuned for more information about this.
