School Times and Starting Dates

Start Dates

Preschool students will begin school on Monday, August 23. Preschool screening will take place by appointment August 18-20. Parents will be contacted to schedule these appointments.

We will use a staggered start schedule for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade who are attending Shawnee Elementary. Because all students will be in a new building this year, teachers will use the first two days to introduce students to their new school in a smaller group, before all students begin attending together. The staggered start will help students and staff acclimate more quickly to their new school building and new routines.
