Welcome to Kreft

August 7, 2017

Dear PreK-1 Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

The start of the 2017-2018 school year is fast approaching.  School begins on August 23rd for K-12.  Preschoolers will start on August 29th.

The school day is as follows for kindergarten and first grade students:
8:10-8:30 am     Buses and students drop off/arrival time
8:10-8:30 am     Breakfast served
8:30 am                Instructional day begins
8:35 am                Students counted tardy if not in their classroom
3:30 pm                End of instructional day
3:35 pm                Every day pick up students dismissed to cafeteria
3:40 pm                Load buses
3:50 pm                Last bus leaves Kreft

Note:  Preschool hours are different than K-1.  Individual letters will be sent home to accepted preschool families with information about start and stop times.

The first couple weeks of school students learn many procedures to help create a safe and caring environment.  Classroom, hallway, cafeteria, bus, and playground procedures are a few of the routines taught to all students.

School attendance is important to student success.  It is hard for teachers to teach children who are not at school.  Please review the attendance policy as outlined in the Lewis Central Elementary Handbook on the Lewis Central web site at www.lewiscentral.org.

For parents bringing their child to school, use the east parking lot for drop-off and at dismissal time.  In the morning our staff members will greet students as they exit vehicles.  The adults will escort children to the building where they will proceed to breakfast or recess.  In the afternoon, park in the east lot and enter through the main doors of the school and continue to the cafeteria.  Your child will be brought to the cafeteria where you will need to sign him/her out each day. We will have procedures for checkout posted the first days of school to remind parents of our safety guidelines.

Drop-off supply night will be held on August 21, 2017 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at Kreft Primary School.  You can bring your child to meet his/her teacher, become familiar with the building and drop off your child's school supplies.  Teachers will provide you with information about the first days of school as well as give you the opportunity to sign up for fall conferences.

The Kreft staff is excited to work with you and your child.  If you have questions or need to contact the school for any reason, please call 712-366-8290 or 712-366-8292.
