4K & Kindergarten Staggered Start

Children in School District of Oconee County 4K and Kindergarten classes will begin school on a staggered start for the 2020-2021 school year.  The purpose of a staggered start is to allow students who are in the early stages of experiencing school to be exposed to school-wide and classroom expectations in a small group. This transition will allow for the first day with their entire class to operate smoothly. A staggered start will also allow the teacher to begin building relationships with his/her students and complete required beginning of the year assessments with each student in a more manageable environment.  

From Monday, August 24 through Thursday, August 27th, 4K and Kindergarten students will attend just one day of school.  Then all students will attend school on Friday, August 28th.  Teachers will contact parents/guardians to schedule what day of the week their child will attend school, schedule parent conferences for 4K students, and review other details about the staggered start procedures. If you have any further questions please contact your child’s school.
