Please view Dr. Hasselbrink's TK/K Informational Meeting presentation from March & April 2021.

Welcome to Kindergarten

Whether your family will be new to our school, or you are already part of our school community, kindergarten is a wonderful year at LJES! We offer a full day kindergarten program from 8:15am-2:45pm, with a 12:20 dismissal each Wednesday. We also offer transitional kindergarten (TK), and it follows the same schedule. 
To register a child for TK or Kindergarten, please bring two current proofs of residency, the child's birth certificate or passport, and their immunization record to the school office. For questions regarding enrollment, please email Lisa Schrift at  You can also contact the school office at 619-605-3300 during the school year (please note that the office closes from mid-June to mid-August).
We usually have playdates in July and August in order to provide a fun way for incoming TK and Kindergarten families to meet each other, as well as to familiarize the children with the Kindergarten area before the start of the school year. We also usually have a Kindergarten BBQ in August.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lisa Schrift via email at, call the school office at the above number, or you can email one of our PTO Presidents, Tricia Cavaiola at or Ulka Pandya at
