One of our goals at Kimpton Middle School is to ensure we do our best to provide a school climate that is safe, secure and supports our students and their needs. We understand the preteen and early teen years are tumultuous times with respect to students dealing with their relationships with their peers, while they also try to be successful in school.
We also understand the transition to middle school from Lakeview Intermediate is much different for students than the transition from their elementary school to Lakeview. Therefore, this year, we are implementing a Staggered Start for the 2015-2016 school year. On Thursday, August 27th ONLY Grade 7 students will come to school. This first day of school for Grade 7 students will support their transition to middle school as we will provide many opportunities for them to make connections with their peers, as well as their teachers. Our school day schedule will be adjusted for the students. Below is our schedule for your information:
7:35: Doors Open for Student Drop-Off
7:45 - 8:30 Extended Homeroom (Practice Lockers)
8:30 - 10:40 Students attend 6 Information Sessions
10:40 - 12:10 Lunch/Tour of Kimpton/Homeroom to Practice Lockers
12:10 - 2:30 Adjusted Schedule - Students Visit All of their Classes
2:30 - 2:40 Homeroom & Dismissal
We look forward to providing a day to help our Grade 7 students transition to Kimpton Middle School. Please know ALL students will come to school on Friday, August 28th.
