             In an effort to make the transition to Kindergarten a fun and successful experience, the Larson Kindergarten Team will be “rolling in” students in August.

             

            Individual appointments will be held in mid-August (teachers will be contacting parents in August to set-up appointments). During the individual meeting students will get to do a scavenger hunt and explore the school and the playground. Parents are welcome to stay during the individual appointment. Kindergarten teachers will be contacting parents with their child’s roll-in date/time.

             

            There will also be a small group orientation.  The small group orientation will be run as a “mini day” so students will become familiar with routines and class expectations.  Parents please plan to drop off and pick up your student during the small group session. 

             

            Kindergarten teachers will be contacting parents with their child’s orientation date/time.

          Remote Learning Resources

          • On March 16, 2020, a new phase of education began for Mat-Su schools. This new phase involves adaptability and flexibility for educators, students, and MSBSD families. 

            The primary method of education delivery will be online. However, to ensure that every student has access to learning materials and activities, MSBSD will provide the opportunity for parents and students to access printed copies of materials if necessary, regardless of computer and internet access at home. Teachers and principals will coordinate scheduled times at the school level to arrange for delivery of offline learning materials to families. We ask that parents and students work with the student’s teacher, or principal, for arrangements that work best for individual family situations. Do not hesitate to ask for assistance or help.
