Streetsboro City Schools students return to school Aug. 18.
But, there is one exception. Kindergartners at Wait Primary School begin school gradually from Aug. 18 to Aug. 20, the latter being the entire grade's first full day together.
On Aug. 18 and 19, kindergarten students and parents will attend open houses with each classroom teacher assigned to a different time slot:
Monday, Aug. 18
Sandra Mercer, 8:15 a.m.
Sharon Besserman, 9:45 a.m.
Cynthia Patrick, 12:15 p.m.
Kelli Thomas, 1:45 p.m.
Tuesday, Aug. 19
Sarah Nemer, 8:15 a.m.
Lauren Schwerdtfeger, 9:45 a.m.
Allison Ross, 12:15 p.m.
Dana Gregrow, 1:45 p.m.
Kindergarten students with last names beginning with letters "A-M" will ride the bus to school for their first day Aug. 20. Those with last names beginning with the letters "N-Z" will ride the bus to school for their first full day Aug. 21.
All kindergartners ride the bus to school Aug. 22.
Preschool open houses also have been scheduled for Aug. 20. Morning preschoolers and their parents should attend a 9:30 a.m. open house at Wait Primary School, and afternoon students should attend a 12:30 p.m. open house.
First-grade open house is Aug. 14
The Wait Primary School open house for first-graders is Aug. 14.
Students with last names beginning with the letters "A-M" should attend the 5 p.m. open house, and those with last names beginning with the letters "N-Z" should come to the 6 p.m. open house.
Students will have the chance to meet their teachers and visit their classroom.
Students also may bring school supplies to the open house, so the bus ride on the first of school is easier.
