From The Principal's Desk 
Dear Blossom Hill Families:

I am excited to share our new Kindergarten Schedule for the 2022-2023 school year. Team LGUSD is thrilled to be offering this extended day schedule for our youngest learners. 

All K-5 classes will start at 8:10am and Kindergarten will be dismissed at 1:30pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Kindergarten students will be released at 11:55am on Wednesdays.

Please save the date for the upcoming Kindergarten Orientation on April 27th at 1:00pm.

We are also excited to share that Lexington Elementary School will offer the LGUSD Transitional Kindergarten program in the fall and follow the International Baccalaureate framework. TK classes will begin at 8:10am, but there will be a “soft start” for any families commuting from downtown. TK will also end at 1:30pm, except for Wednesdays when they will be dismissed at 11:40am. There will be a TK Parent IB Information Night on April 6th, from 6-7:30 pm at Lexington and a TK orientation on April 27th at 1:00pm.

I encourage you to share this information with any families that are new to our learning community.
In education together,
Lisa Reynolds
Principal, Blossom Hill Elementary
