Do you know a child who is ready for Kindergarten?
Children who enter kindergarten 2021-2022 school must turn five years old by August 1st of 2021. Avenue City School is currently scheduling screenings for students who will enter kindergarten. These screenings are used to tell parents and teachers the student’s strengths and weaknesses before entering school. If your child will turn 5 before August 1, 2021 call the school office (816-662-2305) to schedule your child’s screening.
District staff is working in conjunction with the United Way to provide KinderClub for these students and parents of these students. What is KinderClub? United Way KinderClub - Success By 6 fosters and prepares young children for future success. Research has shown how critical the earliest years are in setting the stage for life, indicating that children who enter kindergarten with the foundation to learn are likely to succeed and reach their full potential. KinderClub aims to strengthen the system that nurtures the community’s youngest children by working with parents and early education teachers to help children develop the skills needed for Kindergarten. The initiative works to educate parents about their key role as their child’s first teachers, helps educators learn more about their incoming students, and will familiarize future ACES with district personnel and district facility. Avenue City will be working with United Way to offer this program for our 2021-2022 kindergarten students and families. The dates for this program are March 22, 24, 29, and 31 from 3:30-4:30 PM. (Because of COVID-19 restrictions - there will be temperature checks, mask wearing, social distancing, and only one parent/guardian per student allowed to attend.)

The Avenue City School district and the Andrew County Health Department have teamed together to provide COVID testing through the end of April 2021. FREE testing will be available from the Andrew County Health Department for people showing symptoms of the Corona virus. If you, your child or another family member living within our school district shows symptoms of the diseases, you may call our school and speak with Mrs. Russell, our school nurse, in order to obtain a testing time at the Health Department in Savannah. The department will conduct a drive through test and times will be set at either 9:30 AM or 2:30 PM. The school will accept calls between 8:30 AM and 2:30 PM Monday through Friday.
