Welcome Incoming Kindergarten Families!
This is a very exciting time for you and your child. Please check in here often for information and updates regarding the kindergarten registration and screening process.
Step One: Pre-Registration Survey for Kindergarten Information Night
Please fill out our pre-registration kindergarten survey on your student. We use this survey to collect preliminary information about students and to contact you with more information regarding registration events!
Step Two: Kindergarten Enrollment Material Pick Up
We have scheduled the following dates to pick up enrollment packets for your incoming kindergarten student. These enrollment packets will be referenced during the “virtual” Parent Information Night so we ask that you please try to pick up your materials in advance.
Packet Pick Up will take place at the Main Door of Narragansett on the dates and times listed below. In an effort to support social distancing, pick up will be "grab and go" style - there will be a table with materials under the portico.
Step Three: Kindergarten Parent Information Night
Kindergarten Parent Information Night will be held virtually via Zoom on Tuesday, March 2nd from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. At this meeting, parents will meet school staff, learn about a day-in-the-life of a Kindergarten student, and receive information about the enrollment process. Details about enrollment packets, online enrollment and how to schedule students for a Kindergarten screening will also be shared.

Step Six: Kindergarten Screening (August 30th)
We wanted to share a summer update on Kindergarten Screening this fall. More information will be available as the date gets closer but the following are some preliminary details. The screening process will take place as follows:
August 30 (Mon.): Kindergarten Screening by Appointment
September 1 (Wed.): Kindergarten Placement will take place. Notifications will be via email.
September 2 (Thurs.) First Day of School for Kindergarten
The Kindergarten screening process will take approximately 20 minutes. Please use the following LINK to sign up for an appointment.
Virtual Parent Orientation: On the date/time of your scheduled screening, a staff member will greet you and your child at the entrance of the school. We will welcome your child to join one of our Kindergarten teachers to be screened. During your child’s Kindergarten screening appointment, we would like to invite you to a “Virtual Parent Orientation.” While your child is off with one of our kindergarten teachers, you will have the opportunity to watch a presentation that will answer many of the questions commonly asked by incoming Kindergarten families.
Ride the Bus: As part of our welcome to kindergarten program, we have school bus runs scheduled during screening. Your child is invited to tour and "ride the bus" around the school bus loop to help prepare them for the first day of school.
