Kindergarten Round Up

We are excited to announce Kindergarten Roundup dates and times.

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  We are so excited to have your child be a part of Fort Calhoun Community Schools.  We know how vital it is to implement and instill in your child all the necessary tools to be successful.  Thank you for your support while starting this journey.  Furthermore, with the complications of COVID-19,
the journey for next school year may look quite different.  Please ensure the administration will have an anticipated plan to start the 2020-21 school year in the safest environment possible.

The updated Kindergarten Roundup dates and times, due to COVID-19, are on July 15, 16 and 17.  There will be two different sessions from 9:00-11:00 am and 12:00-2:00 pm on Wednesday, July 15 and Thursday, July 16.  On Friday, July 17, there will only be one session in the morning at 9:00-11:00 am.  This provides essential time with our staff and is important in setting up the direction we go for each student. We feel this plan will fit our culture here at Fort Calhoun Elementary and enhance the learning environment. We are thankful for this opportunity and are excited to add your family to the Fort!

We will divide the upcoming kindergarteners within each session.  A letter home will provide you the information of when your child will come.

The following will explain what the session will entail.  Due to the COVID-19 recommendations, there will be approximately twelve students in each session.  During the day, the schedule will be set up to engage students in multiple cognitive/motor/language activities.  There will be no lunch or snack served during these sessions.  Unfortunately due to COVID-19 recommendations with social distancing, we will not be hosting a parent meeting.

PLEASE CALL THE SCHOOL OFFICE at 402-468-5714 to verify that your child will or will not be coming to your session and/or if your child will not be attending kindergarten at Fort Calhoun next year.

The state requires your child to be 5 years old by July 31, 2020, to qualify for Kindergarten.  

If you have any questions, please contact the elementary office. Thank you.  We look forward to our journey together!

Please fill out the forms included in the letter sent home and turn them into the office during your assigned session.  Thank you!
