First Six Days of Kindergarten

Kindergarten in FWPS will start with six half-days to provide an opportunity for our new scholars to get to know their school building, learn routines and expectations & build relationships prior to starting school full time. Teachers will create class lists after the first two days. The half days will also accommodate the WaKIDS Family Connections Meetings which will take place in the afternoon. The first six half-days will start on August 30th and will go until Thursday September 7th. Full time kindergarten will begin on Friday September 8th.

Half days will be on a 3.5 hour early release.

If your child rides the bus, this means your child’s bus will arrive at their normal stop approximately 3.5 hours earlier than normal.  As an important reminder, parents or guardians must be present to pick up their child from the bus stop when the bus arrives. Bus expectations, frequently asked questions, and more details can be found on our website at
