Staggered Entry for Kindergarteners

Please make sure you arrange for childcare the first week of school.

Your child will participate in a one-day only Peabody Kindergarten Orientation, also known as “staggered entry” which begins the first week of school.  Your classroom teacher will call  to inform you of the one-day orientation/testing day during that week.

Your Kindergartener’s first full week of school starts the second week of school. 

The Peabody Calendar is updated each summer. Click here for the latest calendar.

Teacher Requests

The school reserves the right to ensure that all classrooms are evenly distributed in learning needs, personalities and disciplinary issues.

Drop off and Pick up.  Teachers are ready to receive students by 8:00 am.  The school bell rings at 8:15 am. You can bring your child to the room or drop him off in front of the school.  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!)  The school day ends at 3:15 pm.  Your child will be waiting for you outside the school by 3:15 with his classmates and supervised carefully by his teacher.  It’s quite the logistical marvel.
