Dear Big Sandy School Community,

Preschool and Kindergarten Age Cut-Off Dates for 2024-25 school Year

For 20ish years, we had our preschool and kindergarten start date on June 1. We believe this date allowed our students the time for maturity needed for the best success academically, socially, and emotionally.

In response to a parent concern, and on the advice of the District’s attorney and the Colorado Association of School Boards, we moved to the August 1 start date.

Since all day, every day Kindergarten and the Universal Preschool Program have been honoring start dates prior to June 1, we plan to move our start date back to June 1 as we believe it is best for students.

We plan to have June 1 be our start date beginning with the 2024-25 school year.

Age Requirements by June 1st to Register:

  • Preschool: 3 years of age
  • Prekindergarten: 4 years of age
  • Kindergarten: 5 years of age

Grades: Kindergarten, Pre-School
