Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, kindergarten information nights will be held virtually, with each school hosting Q&A Google Meet sessions for parents.
Links will be available on edinaschools.org/kindergarten by Friday, Nov. 20, and will be emailed out to families prior to the event dates.
The district is encouraging families to virtually attend their neighborhood school’s kindergarten information night on Tuesday, Dec. 1 or Tuesday, Dec. 8.
In addition, the district-wide choice options of continuous progress and French immersion will also hold virtual information nights in December. These sessions provide information about kindergarten and out-of-school programming and provide an opportunity to meet school principals and staff.
