District families with children who turned four years of age by Aug. 31 who do not have access to a high-quality early learning program and would benefit from additional preparation for kindergarten are eligible
Woodland Public Schools officials recently announced the start of a transitional kindergarten program called Jump Start. District families with children who turned four years of age by August 31, 2022 who do not have access to a high-quality early learning program and would benefit from additional preparation for kindergarten are eligible for this free transitional kindergarten program which will start on Tue., Nov. 2.
Students in Jump Start Kindergarten will attend school every day (five days a week) for the full school day at North Fork Elementary School from 8 a.m. to 2:25 p.m. and may ride the school bus operating on the normal stop schedule. Jump Start Kindergarten students will learn from certificated teachers and paraeducators with a curriculum that provides rich and varied experiences in learning environments developmentally appropriate to address the whole child.
Jump Start kindergartners have access to all of the same elements of a regular kindergarten school day including access to transportation, meals, and specialists (music, P.E., art, etc.). Meals are no longer free for all students, however, those families eligible for the Free and Reduced Lunch program can apply at the following website: https://www.woodlandschools.org/food-services
Although all Jump Start Kindergarten students will attend North Fork Elementary School, all Woodland families are eligible regardless of where they live; within the service boundary for North Fork or for one of Woodland’s other elementary schools.
Space is limited so interested Woodland families should apply today at the following link: https://forms.gle/qZGXjFaqLte2mGaz7
