Email from Mary Pat O’Connell:
Greetings to our incoming kinder families!
I want to be sure that you are clear about the time schedule for your children who will be attending Nixon beginning on August 16.
The Board of Trustees of Palo Alto Unified School District made a decision in June to increase the length of the school day for kindergartners beginning on October 10, 2016. Before that date, kindergartners will attend school from 8:00 am to 11:40 am each day of the week. Beginning on Monday, October 10, kindergartners will have the same daily schedule as our 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders and this schedule will continue through the end of the school year. I have attached a copy of the daily bell schedule to this email so that you can make plans for after school care for your child as needed.
Please plan to join us for welcome to school events on Friday afternoon, August 12 from 4:00 to 5:30 pm when class lists are posted and on the first day of school beginning at 8:00 am in the theater. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know each of your children as this school year gets underway.
