That's because after spending all that money on the high school, stadium,elementary schools, and the new buses, the district now has to CUT teachers and can not afford full time kindergarten. Oh but don't worry you can pay TOT TIME for half day and they do a WONDERFUL job and it is in the same building as your child's free kindergarten class...remember the districts gets money for renting out space ....
