Changes are coming this fall at Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS).
In an effort to cut costs, local schools will be moving to full day kindergarten classes, opposed to half-days that ran prior.
"We had been challenged with the act to reduce school fees as it relates to student transportation, making it no longer physically feasible for us to continue to offer noon hour busing," said EIPS board chair Trina Boymook.
Children will attend two full-days a week and occasionally, three days a week so that they meet the required 475 instructional hours.
"This will apply to all of our schools offering kindergarten programing," added Boymook.
Kindergarten students at Fort Elementary will be either attending on Mondays and Thursdays, with occasional Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Fridays, with occasional Wednesdays.

Elk Island Catholic Schools will still be offering half-day kindergarten classes.
