Dear Young School Parents,

Our Young School Team looks forward to meeting with you during the annual “Kindergarten Screening”, which is scheduled for the fall of 2020.  Parent(s) of an incoming kindergarten student will receive an email from the Young School Administrative Assistant, Laurie Turmel, which will provide your child’s screening date and time.  For planning purposes, we estimate the screening will take about an hour for each new student and about 30 minutes for students who previously attended the Saco School District’s pre-kindergarten program.  The protocol that we are designing for this screening will reflect guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). 

The kindergarten screening experience will involve your child in a variety of “student friendly assessments”.  All new students to the Saco School System will participate in a standardized assessment that is designed to identify young children who need further testing or who need help with academic skills.  This standardized assessment is required by the Maine Department of Education.  In addition, during the same scheduled screening time, your child will meet with their kindergarten teacher.  During this meeting your child will see the classroom, and partake in the assessment of a few pre-reading/math skills such as letter and number ID.

The kindergarten screening process will differ for students who have participated in the Saco School Department’s Pre-Kindergarten Program.  These students will only participate in the assessments administered by their assigned classroom teacher, which will take approximately 30 minutes as previously mentioned.

We truly look forward to meeting with you and your child.

Best Wishes,

Peter E. Harrison, Ed.D.
