General Info

Welcome to Kindergarten at Acres Green!  The following is some information to help your child transition smoothly.

Arrival - Acres Green will be having a "soft start" this year. Students are welcome to come into the classroom beginning at 8:20. The first bell rings at 8:35 and the tardy bell rings at 8:40. Kindergarten students may enter through the front doors of the school and will be directed through the building to their classrooms. Bus riders will be escorted from the bus to the classroom by an adult.

Dismissal - Bus riders will be escorted to the bus by an adult. BASE students will be escorted to BASE. Teachers will escort car riders and walkers to the front of the building by the flagpole and remain with them until they are picked up. 

Lunch - Students will be eating lunch in the cafeteria. Children may bring a lunch from home or purchase lunch from the cafeteria. You may set up an account online.

Breakfast - Breakfast is available to purchase from the cafeteria.

Snacks - Please pack a healthy snack daily, separate from their lunch. Snacks need to be ready to eat including utensils if needed (for example, plastic spoons for fruit cups). We encourage healthy snacks such as fruit, veggies, breakfast bars, cheese and crackers, boxed raisins, and dried fruit. We will be eating snack outside.

Water - Staying hydrated is important for those hard-working brains. Please send an unbreakable water bottle daily, labeled with your child's name.

Specials - Our Specials are P.E., Music, and Art. We rotate through Specials for one week at a time, in that order. Please have your child wear or bring gym shoes during P.E. and Fitness weeks.

Birthdays - We love to celebrate birthdays here at school! This year we will not be able to celebrate with treats or goody bags brought from home. We will recognize the birthday child in other ways on their special day.

Backpacks - Please check your child's backpack daily for important remote learning materials.

Questions - If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please feel free to email us at any time. We welcome all concerns, ideas, and feedback that affect your child or our classroom.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records at this link ( Douglas County School District Transcripts and Records Requests ).
