Beginning of Year Kindergarten Schedule

The first week of school for Kindergarten students is different from other grades in the district.  According to the Ohio Department of Education, all kindergarten students must take the “Kindergarten Readiness Assessment” (KRA).  This test will be given Wednesday, August 23rd through Friday, August 25th.  Each student will be given a 40 minute time slot to attend a one-on-one assessment with a teacher.  Once the assessments are completed, classes will begin for students.  

In order to make it an easier transition, children will be given transition days to attend when only half the class will be present.  Kindergarten transition days will be held Monday, August 28th and Tuesday, August 29th.   This gives your child time with his/her teacher to learn the daily routine without so many children attending.  Teachers usually request that parents bring their kindergarten child(ren) to school that first introduction day for half of the class so that they can go over classroom expectations with both the parents and the children. Specific dates and times for KRA and the transition day, along with the child’s teacher’s name will be mailed home by August 12th.  If there are any questions during the summer, please email Mrs. Andrea Clements, TV Primary Principal, at andrea.clements@tvtrojans.org.
