    Jumpstart THIS WEEK: Aug 20-24

    Everything you need to know about Jumpstart can be found at the District Jumpstart program webpage. Registration required. 

    Jump Start is a FREE week-long experience for Kindergartners to learn about school. 
    Other key aspects to know:

    • Jump Start runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. each morning for one week

    • A parent/guardian meeting with the school principal is scheduled during the week

    • Bilingual staff will assist children who are English-language learners

    • Extra support is offered for children with special needs 

    • No transportation provided, so families need to drop off and pick up children each day. See LAUNCH childcare program in Resources section for help with drop off/pickup.
