PUSD schedules TK/K information sessions

Meetings this month for parents of incoming young students

With the calendar turning to 2019, Pleasanton Unified School District officials are aware that some parents are already getting prepared for sending their young children to school for the first time next fall.

The district has scheduled five information sessions -- all later this month -- for parents and guardians of students set to start transitional kindergarten or kindergarten in the 2019-20 school year, which begins in August.

"The informational meetings will include an overview of the Pleasanton Unified School District, the Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation (PPIE), what to expect in TK and kindergarten, information about the district's dual immersion program, available onsite after-school child care through Kids Club, as well as information about our Health Services, requirements and enrollment procedures," officials said in a statement.

Each session, which is for parents or guardians only, is set to present the same information to parents and guardians.

The first meeting is scheduled for 6-7 p.m. Jan. 17 in the Donlon Elementary School multipurpose room. The second session will follow on Jan. 22 from 6-7 p.m. in the Hearst Elementary multipurpose room.

The final three sessions will have alternative language options available: Jan. 23 from 6-7 p.m. in the Valley View Elementary multipurpose room (English and Spanish), Jan. 24 from 9-10 a.m. in the boardroom at district headquarters (English and Mandarin) and Jan. 24 from 10:15-11:15 a.m. at district HQ (English and Korean).

Parents or guardians interested in attending should RSVP at

The district will also be hosting neighborhood registration events at elementary school sites beginning in February.
