Key Information

Posted: Updated:

We received a letter today from the school principal welcoming Macy.  The letter contains good information, including the name of her teacher and confirming Macy will be in the afternoon class.  The letter included some other minor details, but not the day school starts.  That's odd.  Don't they know?  I checked their website and it wasn't on the calendar either.  When will they tell us?  It started the first week of September last year, and the year before that.  Everyone we talk to says they always start the first week of September so we've tentatively marked that on our calendar.

In the letter, the principal notes that there will be a kindergarten orientation day "mid-August" and they'll send us an update "soon" when the details are set.  That feels reassuring so we'll look forward to getting that follow up so we can mark it on Macy's calendar and use it as an opportunity to talk with her about school.
