From a Sumner School District press release:

Beginning in September, part-time kindergarten students will attend school all day on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (red kindergarten) or all day on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (blue kindergarten). The new schedule was implemented for students with additional hours of instruction to learn basic skills for first grade.

 

The Sumner School District will offer free full-time kindergarten classes for students in the Daffodil Valley and Liberty Ridge elementary schools for the coming school year.  Enrollment in this program is limited to students residing within these school attendance boundaries.

 

Providing free full-time kindergarten programs at Daffodil Valley and Liberty Ridge elementary schools is part of a multi-year transition to free full-time programs at all District elementary schools. Daffodil Valley and Liberty Ridge elementary schools will no longer offer a part-time (red or blue) kindergarten programs.

Other elementary schools in the District offer part-time kindergarten programs and tuition-based, full-time programs on a space available basis.
