Dear Kindergarten Families,

Welcome to Windsor Elementary School! We look forward to getting to know you and working together to help make the transition from home to school a positive experience for your child. Kindergarten students will begin school gradually. Please note the important dates below:

Parent Meeting in the Library – Tuesday, Sept. 3rd at 10:30am
Kindergarten parents will meet in the library from 10:30-11:30am (upstairs, 2nd floor). This meeting is for
