We are looking forward to working with you and your children as we begin a new school year! The following information is intended to help you have a smooth transition into kindergarten in Mt. Lebanon School District.
Each day, your child should bring a backpack to school along with a folder for notices and other papers. Please check this folder daily.
Drop-off and Pick-up
Your child's teacher will explain procedures for dropping off and picking up your child at your neighborhood elementary school. Please note that the morning kindergarten session is from 8:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. The afternoon session begins at 12:45 p.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.
We have outdoor recess daily (weather-permitting). If your child wishes to play on the playground equipment, he or she will need to have on sneaker-stlye shoes.
The class will visit the library one day out of the five day cycle. Because library will not fall on the same day each week, we recommend keeping the library book in your child's backpack when he/she is finished reading it at home.
At dismissal time, the class will exit promptly at 11:15 a.m. (3:30 p.m. for afternoon kindergarten). It is a good idea to stand in the same spot so that your child can easily find you. If you are going to be late, please notify the office and your child will wait there. Please provide your plans for bringing and picking up your child. Should your plans change on any given day, we ask that you email us or write a note with the alternate arrangements in advance.
Please stop in the office for a Visitor's Pass when you are scheduled to volunteer in the classroom or meet with the teacher. Thank you!
