MIDDLEFORK SCHOOL NEWS

Dr.Greene's 2019 Back-to-School Letter
2019-20 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION: Parents of District 29 resident children who will be five years old by September 1, 2020, may register them for 2020-21 kindergarten on January 22, 2020 from 2-4:00 and 6-7:00 p.m. in the Middlefork Lobby. The registration process begins with residency verification. This is true for ALL families, including those with students presently registered in District 29 schools. Additionally, parents or guardians of each prospective kindergarten student must provide the child's official birth certificate (the school will make and retain a copy). Specific directions for the residency verification and subsequent registration can be found under the Parent tab on the District 29 website.
PLEASE NOTE that District 29 also has procedures in place to assess a student's readiness for advanced placement to kindergarten and/or first grade. If your child does not meet the state's birth date cut-off, and you feel he or she is ready for entrance to kindergarten or first grade, please contact Dr. Greene to learn about the application process and timetable.

Thank you for sharing this information with the adult picking up your child(ren).

CELL PHONES IN THE DRIVEWAY: Drivers should cease using their cell phones during pick-up or drop-off time, when students are present on the sidewalk. We understand that some people arrive early, but once the students appear, the potential for distraction makes cell phone usage unsafe. Thank you for putting down your phones while there are children on the sidewalk!
