**UPDATE** – CHANGES – Kindergarten Registration 2020-2021

Register for Kindergarten

Due to the COVID-19 virus meeting restrictions, we are cancelling the Registration Day for Kindergartners 2020-2021, which was previously scheduled to take place on Wednesday, April 22, 2020.

Instead we ask you to do the following:

When we are able to open school again we will plan another day for parents to submit the following to our office:

  1. Immunization record, signed by a medical provider
  2. Birth certificate
  3. Proof of Residency (2x) – not required for students attending on a permit

If you have a child who will be five (5) years of age before September 2, 2020, he/she qualifies for next year’s Kindergarten program.

If your Kindergarten student does not live within our school boundaries, and you would like him/her to attend Viewmont Elementary next year, you will have to apply for a permit. However, the Murray City School District Office, where you would go to apply for a permit, does NOT allow visitors at the moment, due to the COVID-19 virus. You may apply for a permit as soon as they are open again. We will post that information on this website at that time.

Digital Home Learning – How to navigate Google Classroom (VIDEO)

MCSD has recognized that Google Classroom is a new tool for our K-6 parents.  As such, Missy Hamilton, Elementary Director of Teaching and Learning, has created a 5-minute video tutorial.  In it, she demonstrates what you will see on a student Chromebook and how to easily navigate it.  Please take a look at this video

Digital Home Learning – Speech

For students who receive speech and language services, Mrs. Arthur will post work related to their speech and language goals via their Google classroom (grades 1-6) or directly to the parent’s email address (Kindergarten).

Additional information regarding the posted work will be included so students know what to practice at home to continue to strengthen their speech and language skills.

Mrs. Arthur’s office hours will be 9 am-10 am & 1 pm-2 pm. You can contact her and receive immediate responses during these times via her email address: sarthur@murrayschools.org.

Please also use this email address to ask questions outside of the office hours as well and she will respond in a timely manner.
