Welcome to Elda Elementary

We hope the following information will be helpful to you as you begin your educational journey with Ross Local Schools!  We are thrilled to welcome you to Elda Elementary!

Kindergarten Supply Drop-off and Transportation Check-in: August 9th, 6:00-7:00pm

This will be an opportunity for parents/guardians to check-in with Transportation to make sure pick-up and drop-off addresses are correct.  We will also have a bus here for the children to check out!  Students in AM Classes will drop off supplies and meet with transportation from 6:00-6:30.  Students in PM Classes will drop off supplies and meet with transportation 6:30-7:00pm.

*At this time, students will drop off their supplies in the cafeteria and meet with transportation: we will have an Open House for parents to meet the teacher and check-out the room once the school year gets up and running.

Kindergarten Open House: August 25th, 4:45-6:00pm

Students in AM Classes will have Open House 4:45-5:15pm.  Students in PM Classes will have Open House 5:30-6:00pm.  This will be a great time for parents to see the classroom, meet the teacher, and get an idea of what the students’ day looks like!  Everyone is welcome!  This is a very exciting time for children and their families and we are looking forward to to seeing all of you here for Open House!

Kindergarten School Fees:

Student Fees are $40.00 for the 2016-2017 school year. Parents are encouraged to pay fees during the first week of school. Payment may be cash, check, or credit card.

Kindergarten First Day:  

The first day kindergarten students will ride the bus is Thursday, August 18th.  We advise parents to have children ride the bus to school on this day so they can begin to learn their normal routine.  The classroom teachers meet the buses and take all of the kindergarten children off of the bus first before going to the classrooms.
