Getting to know Your Kindergartner

The Litchfield Elementary School District appreciates you taking the time to sign-up and bring your child up to a Getting To Know Your Kindergartner summer session at the end of July. During this session, your child will meet one-on-one with a kindergarten teacher at your child's school campus. The teacher will take some time to get to know your child and gather some academic and social information. This information will be used to help the school appropriately place your child with the teacher that will best meet their needs. Please click on the Getting to Know Your Kindergartner Sign-Up link to schedule an appointment for your incoming kindergartner. *If you have submitted an Open Enrollment application, please wait until you have received notice of acceptance before signing up for an appointment.*
