Franklin Regional announces kindergarten transition programs
In advance of 2018-19 kindergarten registration opening up, Franklin Regional officials have announced a slate of programs to help preschoolers making the transition next school year.
Kindergarten orientation meetings will take place at 7 p.m. on the following dates:
• Newlonsburg and Sloan elementaries: Feb. 26
• Heritage Elementary: Feb. 27
The registration window for children entering kindergarten runs from March 13 to April 30. Placements at a child's neighborhood school are not guaranteed after the April 30 cutoff.
Children must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2018, to be eligible.
As the new school year approaches, the district will also host a series of introductory programs, including a meet-and-greet with homeroom teachers, principals and other school officials in August, as well as a staggered start where parents will attend alongside students on one or the first two days of the school year.
