Supe's On: Kindergarten screening at BV on the horizon

Dr. Jarod Larson, BVSD Superindentent

The elementary schools of the Brandon Valley School District are accepting registrations for Kindergarten Screening starting on Jan. 4. A child must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2023, to be eligible to start Kindergarten for the 2023-24 school year. Please, contact your respective elementary attendance center for more information and to register for Kindergarten Screening. 

Regarding next school year, the draft 2023-24 Academic Calendar is moving through the adoption process and closely corresponds to our current Academic Calendar. Within next year’s proposed Academic Calendar, I would highlight multiple items of interest.

Proposed 2023-24 BVSD Academic Calendar

• Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2023 – First Day of School for Students

• Sunday, May 12, 2024 – Graduation Ceremony

• Thursday, May 24, 2024 – Last Day of School for Students

A presentation providing a detailed overview of the proposed 2023-24 Academic Calendar will be available within the Jan. 9 Brandon Valley Board of Education meeting. The proposed calendar is scheduled for adoption in late January. When the 2023-24 Academic Calendar has been formally adopted, we will communicate the final calendar to families through a variety of platforms, including email, websites, and school building communications. We appreciate all of the individuals and committees that have collaborated and assisted in the development of our calendar. 

Let’s make 2023 a great year - Go Lynx!
