Preschool, Junior Kindergarten, and Kindergarten Info for Fall 2020

Preschool, Junior Kindergarten, and Kindergarten families, we are getting ready for you to join the Bison family for the 20-21 school year!

As we are preparing for you to enroll, we wanted to share some information with you.

We will be hosting a Bison Ready Program in August prior to school starting. During this Bison Ready Program, teachers will be completing various assessments to determine the best option for your student. More information on dates coming soon.

The Preschool program will be for 3/4 year olds with a morning/afternoon session.

Junior Kindergarten will be for students who are 5 by September 1st. This program focuses on more social development as well as to bridge the gap between early childhood and traditional Kindergarten programs. Students in this program are eligible for the same services as a kindergarten student regarding school, breakfast/lunch, and busing services.

Kindergarten will be for students who are 5 on or before September 1st, 2020. Students in Kindergarten show they have the developmental, academic, and social emotional skills to excel in a Kindergarten environment.

For more information, please contact Elementary Principal Abby Karn at abby.karn@k12.sd.us.

We look forward to meeting you about becoming a Bison!
