Incoming Kindergarten Parent/Guardian Meeting Set

All elementary schools in Cedar Falls will be holding a parent/guardian meeting for 2018-2019 incoming kindergarten students on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, beginning at 6:30 p.m. A snow make-up date has been set for Thursday, March 22, if school is cancelled on the original date.

All meetings, with the exception of Aldrich Elementary, will be held at each respective elementary building. The meeting for Aldrich Elementary will be held at the District Administration building, 1002 W. First Street.

Students who will be five on or before September 15, 2018, are eligible to begin school this fall. At this parent/guardian-only meeting, the full-day kindergarten program will be described and classroom teachers, school counselors and nurses will be introduced.  Parents/guardians will have the opportunity to complete registration packets, tour the school and become acquainted with other kindergarten parents.
