UNION CITY (Friday. Dec. 12, 2008) – For families of children who were not quite old enough to attend kindergarten when the 2008-09 school year began, a few openings still exist in the New Haven Unified School District’s mid-year, full-day kindergarten program that starts in January.
“One of the things that impresses me most about New Haven is that it’s a forward-thinking district that’s always seeking better ways to serve our children, and mid-year kindergarten is a wonderful example,” said new Superintendent Kari McVeigh, who joined the District on Dec. 1. “It’s exciting to be able to offer families an opportunity to enroll their children in a quality program that will give them a solid foundation when they start regular kindergarten classes in 2009.”
