Staggered Entry for Kindergarteners
Please make sure you arrange for childcare the week of August 8th, 2016.
Your child will participate in a one-day only Peabody Kindergarten Orientation, also known as “staggered entry” which begins the week of Monday, August 8th. The classroom teacher will call you after registration to inform you of the one-day orientation/testing day during that week.
Your Kindergartener’s first full week of school is August 15th, 2015.
The Peabody School Calendar will be shared soon. We will add it to the site. But here is the Shelby County School Calendar for 2016-2017.
Peabody will try to accommodate teacher request on a first to register basis. You can call the school to find out when you can make requests at 901-416-4606. The school reserves the right to ensure that all classrooms are evenly distributed in learning needs, personalities and disciplinary issues.

Staff members our own Peabody Watchdogs are there to help get your child safely out of the car. Don’t be late – or you’ll have to sign in at Principal Nelson’s office (really!)
