Calvert to have staggered K-12 school start for 2018-19 year

Staggered Start for Students in Pre-Kindergarten, Head Start, Kindergarten and Special Education Regional Program Students for the 2018-2019 School Year

The beginning of school is an exciting time for students and their families. To ensure the transition to school is as smooth as possible for our students in pre-kindergarten, Head Start, kindergarten, and special education regional programs, Calvert County Public Schools (CCPS) will implement a staggered start for the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.

The staggered start will enable parents and guardians to meet with teachers to begin communication and collaboration at the beginning of the school year. The week will begin with a conference scheduled by the teacher. During this time, the child will be able to visit the classroom and engage in diverse activities to feel more comfortable in school.

Each program has a slightly different schedule. Please see the schedule below for detailed information.

Elementary schools will continue to host pre-kindergarten, Head Start, and kindergarten “Meet Your Teacher/Peek at Your Seat” events. Individual schools will schedule and publicize the dates and times later in the summer.

For more information, please call your child’s school directly.

We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
