NEW Kindergarten Smart Start

In consultation with early learning experts, 4J has re-designed the start of school for our youngest students to help set them up for success this year and beyond.

Starting with smaller classes and parent conversations will allow teachers the opportunity to understand your child’s unique strengths and needs from the start.

Kindergarten Smart Start will help ensure a successful and personalized introduction to school for each student and a smoother start for all students.

Group A – Last name A-L: Attend full day, Sept 6 (W), 7 (Th), 11 (M), & 13 (W)

Group B – Last name M-Z: Attend full day, Sept 6 (W), 8 (F), 12 (Tu), & 13 (W)

No Kindergarten Sept 14 & 15 – parent/teacher conversations.

School Supplies…just a backpack and water bottle

Eugene 4J school district provides most of the supplies families usually buy. Please plan on sending your student to school with a backpack.
