Staggered Start

When the school year begins on August 22, kindergarten students will have the opportunity to get to know their teacher and new routine in a small group setting on their first day.  Each of Volusia’s 46 elementary schools will implement a “staggered start” for kindergartners on the first three days of school.  With the staggered start, students will receive individualized attention, enabling them to become familiar with their surroundings and school procedures.

Approximately one-third of the class will attend on Monday, August 22, one-third on Tuesday, August 23, and one-third on Wednesday, August 24.  All kindergarten students will begin attending classes together on Thursday, August 25.  Parents will be notified by their school regarding which day their student will attend.
