Willmar postpones Kindergarten Round Up

WILLMAR -- Due to the restructuring in the Willmar School District, the Kindergarten Round Up gatherings scheduled for today at Kennedy Elementary and for May 5 at Jefferson Elementary School have been canceled.

Parents will be notified when the gatherings have been rescheduled.

The district is restructuring its schools serving students from early childhood through grade 8.

Starting next fall, Jefferson will be the home of Willmar Community Education and Recreation. Kennedy and Roosevelt elementary schools will be K-5 buildings. However, kindergarteners who will eventually attend Roosevelt will attend kindergarten at Lincoln Elementary until a classroom addition is completed at Roosevelt.
