For children turning 5 years of age on or before September 1 of the upcoming school year, BPS101 kindergarten is open to all BPS101 residents. As we begin welcoming the next class of future Batavia Bulldogs, we host “meet and greet” sessions at each elementary school before the start of the school year. The purpose of these sessions is to welcome you and your child(ren) to kindergarten and a 13-year partnership with BPS101. We will have time for your child to see their classroom and meet their teacher. We will also give you a primer on school basics such as drop off, pick up, lunches, etc. This will make for a great first day of school! See your school’s calendar for more details.
Here is information about District school boundaries if you are unsure where your student would attend elementary school in our District.
