Frequently Asked Kindergarten Questions

Q:  What should we be working on at home to prepare for Kindergarten?

A:  Children come in at all areas of readiness and our staff is prepared to meet those needs.  Parents can help children work on identifying upper and lower case letters, as well as the letter sounds, to build future readers. Additionally, parents can help children count objects and identify numbers through ten as these are the initial stages of number sense.  These are not required expectations for Kindergarten but will help your children build confidence and help prepare them to be successful.

Q:  What is the procedure if my child will be absent?

A:  Regular student attendance is a vital part of every child’s education. Because of the importance that daily attendance plays in the educational process of every child, the Department of Education and the schools of the Commonwealth are obligated to comply with state and federal requirements for student attendance and truancy.  Details about the CV attendance policy can be found on pages 4-6 of our Elementary Handbook by clicking here.
